Central Community Center / Central Community Kitchen has moved to High Street United Methodist Church, 230 E High Street Springfield, OH 45505.
In November of 2020, the leadership team at High Street UMC met to discuss the possibility of the Central Community soup kitchen moving to High Street. This move became necessary due to the impending sale of the Faith UMC building. The soup kitchen operates under the umbrella of Central Community Center, (CCC). CCC is a stand-alone 501c3 non-profit organization. CCC will rent an office from High Street. The organization has its own board, budget and will operate independently from High Street. The leadership team voted unanimously to accept the CCC/soup kitchen. Since that November meeting, several members have constructed a space at High Street UMC to be used as a pantry for the soup kitchen. The last week of December 2020, the move was started to bring supplies germane to the kitchen to High Street. We will serve two more meals from the present site. January 19, 2021, the first meal from the High Street location will be served.
During the pandemic we have continued to serve to-go meals to anyone who might need a warm meal. Now that more people are being vaccinated, COVID numbers are down, and it is warmer outside, we will continue to serve our community in the safest way possible. Weather permitting we plan to serve meals outdoors, every Tuesday between 5:30 – 6:30 pm.
