The Love Kitchen was first opened in 1988. For more than twenty years, the community-run soup kitchen has fed thousands of meals and served the community of Inwood. Open five days a week, the Love Kitchen sees about 50-100 people step through the doors every day. They are greeted with a delicious and hearty meal prepared by the volunteer chef, Eddie Torres. The Love Kitchen also distribute groceries to those in need weekly. Jewel Jones (more affectionately known as Mr. Jones) has been running the place since day one, and is still doing the good work with the energy of a young man in his twenties. It is his dream of a bakery that serves the community that has led to the founding of A New Creation Bakery.
