Alleviating hunger and loneliness is the heart of our mission in serving others.

Windber Area Community Kitchen (WACK) is a nonprofit organization serving the residents of Bedford, Cambria and Somerset Counties home cooked meals with compassion since 2009.

Our backpack program (WACKPacks) provides non-perishable food items to students in the Windber Area School District. With a vision to end hunger; these items help fill the gap for children who are at risk of missing meals over the weekend and holiday breaks during the school year. 

Join us for a meal!

Our communal, home cooked meals—provided to anyone who walks through the door—grant us the opportunity to interact in a social, positive and friendly environment!

We serve two Saturday meals per month: between 250-350 individuals from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM. Find the schedule on our events calendar.

Support a local food ministry while having a great time with your partner and your friends over Valentine’s Day weekend! The Red Rose Ball is a night to have fun, enjoy good food and drinks, and raise money for WACK so we can help feed those in our local community.
