serve with Riverfront
One of the gifts of Riverfront not owning physical space is that we look to give resources directly back to our community. We do this by transforming already existing spaces into places of mission and partnering with other community organizations for good. Some projects below are owned and operated by Riverfront staff, while others are supported alongside our mission partners.
Wilmington Kitchen Collective
The Wilmington Kitchen Collective is a community-based project dedicated to empowering holistic transformation by providing affordable high-quality commercial kitchen facilities, business development, and economic support to culinary entrepreneurs.
This project brings together the culinary gifts of our entrepreneurs, the gift of space of Grace & First and Central Church, and the gift of creativity and organization of Riverfront.
Riverfront is the operating partner, taking charge of the day-to-day operations of the Kitchen.
If you'd like to get involved, we are always looking for more mentors and teachers in the Kitchen.

Riverfront supports these organizations through volunteer hours and/or outreach funding.
