Cory's Kitchen, Inc., founded in October 1996, serves hurting, hungry individuals and families with high-quality nutritionally balanced food, a new wardrobe, several job referrals, and an opportunity to return to school to complete thier education. In 2009, CKI served over 78,000 individuals with distribution centers located in Irwindale, El Sereno, Baldwin Park, Azusa, Pico Rivera, and Monterey Park. Without aid from CKI, many of these families would eventually become homeless. Having developed close relationships with well-known suppliers such as the Fresh & Easy food chain, Trader Joe's, Albertson's, Ralph's, Von's, Wal-Mart, Feed the Children and the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, gifts-in-kind donations enable CKI to distribute approximately $723,000.00 in goods to the needy each year. There is never a charge for our services.
