Our Kitchen Manager, Jim Larkin, feeds 300 people a day in our Community Kitchen. A huge operation, Jim managers volunteers, Community Meals groups, staff, and the process of making nutritious meals available to everyone who enters our doors.

Jim started working in the kitchen at LTLC over 13 years ago cooking, serving, and connecting with clients. Before he joined us, Jim was a loyal part of the US Navy until he retired after 20 years of service. Now he spends much of his time working with Community Meals volunteer groups, leading the kitchen crew, and working to utilize more produce and improve nutrition.

“The most rewarding part of my job is providing an ear… Some people just need someone to listen. It can make a big difference.”
