Thanksgiving Blessings

We were all very grateful to several local politicians for serving over 250 guests at our free Thanksgiving feast on Wed. Nov. 25th, 2015.  Those serving were 32nd Leg District State Senator Maralyn Chase, Edmonds Mayor Dave Earling, Edmonds City Council President Adrienne Fraley-Monillas; Edmonds City Council member Mike Nelson, Woodway Town Council member Tom Whitson, and newly elected Edmonds School Board member Carin Chase.  We appreciate that these elected officials spent an evening helping others in our community. Thank you so much everyone! politicans2015

John Owen and Rozella Kleven Bless ACK Donors

John Owen has been a tugboat chef for nearly a decade. Working a split shift from 4.30 am-7.00 pm, John cooks breakfast, lunch, and dinner for a crew of 11-20, 7 days a week. He has been working for Crowley Marine Services in Valdez, Alaska for 10 years. A couple of times a year he drops down to the lower 48, and this is when you will have an amazing meal at Annie’s Kitchen. “About 5 years ago, Bob Snyder met me at the gym, and when he found out I was a chef, he roped me in!” said John.


John came back to Annie’s Kitchen on Wednesday, April 8, to make his famous chocolate chip, M&M cookies. John and Rozella spent the morning baking dozens and dozens of cookies, which were than packaged and delivered to some of our loyal donors who supply the food and other items that keep Annie’s Community Kitchen running. Thank you so much, John and Rozella, for your time and baking talents!

Celebrating 11Years of Service


Congratulations and thanks to all of our volunteers and supporters; Annie’s Community Kitchen celebrates 11 years of dedicated service!

Annie’s Community Kitchen is a service of Edmonds Lutheran Church, that provides a delicious, hot and free community meal, every Wednesday evening from 5:00-6:30 pm in the Fellowship Hall of the church. The meal is always well attended and is so successful because of a committed group of volunteers that collectively donate dozens of hours to make this meal so enjoyable and nourishing. We would love for you to come and join us, to participate in the preparation of the meal, or just to enjoy a great dinner among friends.Come as you are…we would love to see you this Wednesday!
