The BLOC Café Kitchen is all about bringing people together
with food. Larry Groves with his wife Darla started the BLOC Café Kitchen in
January 2010. It started small and has grown beyond anything the two imagined!
At the Kitchen, everybody is given second, third, and more chances. People that
cannot find jobs can work at the Kitchen and, as an added benefit, can bring
the food home to their families. People who need community service hours—people
leaving jail or prison, as well as students—can always volunteer at the
kitchen. BLOC Café Kitchen is open for a community meal once a week on Thursday
afternoons from 10:30-12:30; but Larry gives food away all week long, up and
down the streets of Price Hill and wherever and whenever he gets a call telling
him there is someone in need. Larry is a pillar in our community as a resource
for food or anything else that he can help them with. He shows that food truly
does bring people together!
