“Hunger relief is our main goal,’’ said Karen Cook, of Middleborough,cq the executive manager of the kitchen and its founder and chef. “Just because you are hungry doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be treated decently.” Everything is equalized in the guest check, which contains no prices nor totals due. Cook said that’s aimed at creating community, one meal at a time. She describes herself as a church lady who always wanted a mission, and she said she found one with All Are Welcome. “Once the economy tanked, and I saw the increased need at my local food pantry, I got together with a friend and asked, ‘What can we do?’ ” she said.
