Announcing New Schedule for Southside Community Kitchen’s Donation-Based Lunches


Beginning September 18, Green Opportunities’ donation-based meals are now open to community members on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays in the Southside Community Kitchen. Lunch will be served on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 12:00-1:00 pm, while brunch will be available on Fridays from 10:00-11:00 am.


All community members are invited to attend these community meals. The suggested donation is $5 per person per meal. Your continued financial support makes these meals possible, so please make a donation for your lunch whenever you can.


Southside Community Kitchen is Green Opportunities’ donation-based restaurant and interactive culinary classroom, located inside the Arthur R. Edington Education & Career Center at 133 Livingston Street in Asheville. GO’s Kitchen Ready culinary students are responsible for prepping, cooking, and serving these meals, which allows them to gain valuable on-the-job training in both a commercial kitchen and front of house dining room setting.


Southside Kitchen is open to the community most weeks, but sometimes closes for holidays and training program activities. As such, we encourage our patrons to visit our website to view our up-to-date schedule and menu before heading over to Southside Kitchen for lunch or brunch. View our schedule and menu here.
