Who We Are


The Friendly Kitchen has been serving meals to seniors in the Roseburg area for over 40 years. Our mission is to provide meals five days per week through home delivery in the Roseburg area, and at our central kitchen and dining facility in Roseburg, to address the nutritional and fellowship needs of hundreds of our community's seniors as well as those with disabilities.

To meet our mission, we offer two programs:

Helen Lesh - Kitchen in 1972Our History

The Friendly Kitchen opened its doors to seniors at the Faith Lutheran Church on Kenwood Ave. in the fall of 1972.

In 1973 The Friendly Kitchen obtained non-profit status as a 501(c)(3) corporation. For over forty years we have helped seniors and people with disabilities, curb hunger and isolation through good nutrition and fellowship.

Remembering Helen Lesh and so many other fine leaders who had the vision, compassion and volunteer spirit to make The Friendly Kitchen vital in our community.
