Larry and Darla Groves

Director and Supervisor of BLOC Café Kitchen


Larry has always dreamed of opening a restaurant, and Darla is a wife, mother, and nurse. We have been married for 27 years and working together at the BLOC Café since it opened. We found out about a kitchen that wasn’t being used, and Larry wanted to start using it to provide people in Price Hill with free, healthy meals. He started talking with places like Kroger, Dunkin, and GFS about donating food products and finally opened the BLOC Café Kitchen in January 2010. He is out in Price Hill every day of the week, giving out food and taking calls to help those in need. During the Thanksgiving Luncheon, one of our biggest collaborative efforts, Larry helps to bring our donors together to provide food and resources for thousands in the community. Darla oversees the volunteers and gives them jobs assisting with the meals. We love to give people second and third chances to do good and meaningful work and make sure the Kitchen is full of smiles.

"My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work." - John 4:34
