One of the most (if not the most) charitable organizations in Northern Illinois received a well-deserved national award. The Kitchen Table in Rochelle has received all kinds of attention, but not because they sought attention. They earned it and then some.

In late 2019 we shared the news that The Kitchen Table was up for a major national award, "Community Cafe of the Year Away", and asked for your support and voting for this wonderful organization.

The Kitchen Table is a completely volunteer-based community cafe that welcomes all regardless of their ability to pay. It is not necessarily a soup kitchen, more of a pay-what-you-can eatery, and if you can't pay, that's OK too.

As always, the 815 came through in a big way. On Sunday, The Kitchen Table announced they had won the award.

We can officially say, WE WON!! Thank you all for the votes during the contest and for hanging in there with us! We couldn’t have done it without you!

This is certainly well deserved. Congratulations to our friends at The Kitchen Table in Rochelle.
