We continue to prioritize the safety of our staff and members while looking for ways to serve the community.
During this COVID-19 crisis, UpStart Kitchen has been donating meals to families in our community experiencing food insecurity. We have been doing this through local organizations and churches already working in the community. Consider a donation to help us provide meals for needy familes during this crisis.
