  1. I am interested in volunteering in the food pantry in Wentzville. I found out about your
    mission from Calvary West Church in Wentzville, Thanks, Doris Mazzola

  2. Hello i am trying to find information on the commercial kitchen space. How much it may cost? When this area is available? And how long it can be used? I am a new/future catering co. owner and im trying to locate a good commercial kitchen to use. More info? Or know of a place in the Wentzville/St Charles County area?

    Please help! Thanks!

    1. LINC does not make their commercial kitchen available for use or rent by others. It is solely for LINCs use. I do not know of any places in the are that provides commercial kitchen space for rent. I hope you manage to find space and wish you well on your future catering business endeavors.
