Committed to our Community
Neighborhood Kitchen came about as a way to serve the community; co-founders Eddie George Joy's partner Paul were both raised and stayed in the area. Joy was raised as a first-generation American, paid her way through college, and was always grateful to the Laotian community that helped support her throughout her journey.
Since Day 1, the owners and staff at NK have been incredibly grateful for the people and organizations supporting it's mission in feeding and nurturing both a physical and cultural community of love, acceptance, and growth.
We try and serve our community in various ways. We employ local staff and source goods from minority-owned businesses. When COVID-19 caused school's to close the staff at NK decided to provide lunches to food insecure children at no cost and provided food to nurses and medical staff. Please reach out to us if you think we can help you serve your community.
As we mentioned before, we are humbled by the feedback from our guests and reviewers. In addition, the community continues to show it's love to this black-owned restaurant. This is a testament to the inspiring things that come from working together. Below is a link to featured black-owned restaurants in the area, courtesy of Boston.com. Let's keep the movement going!
