God's Kitchen to move

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A major announcement was made Monday morning from God's Kitchen which feeds hundreds of homeless and low income people in Battle Creek.

They're planning to build a new facility in downtown Battle Creek, hoping to open by the end of next year.

Since they opened, God's Kitchen has served more than 70,000 meals to the Battle Creek community in the last two and half years.

They're now planning to raise $1.5 million to build their own kitchen downtown Battle Creek.

Right now they're serving four hot meals a week a First Baptist in Battle Creek. Pastor William Stein tells us in the interim they will cut back on meal service from four days to just one starting in July.

They will also move to a new church temporarily, starting in July, while construction is underway.

He says he knows these changes will be hard on the community, and they're still hoping to meet the need in Battle Creek as much as they can.

God's Kitchen is hoping the community will step forward and support them in this project. They launched their capital campaign to raise $1.5 million Monday morning.
