Common Ground Community Kitchen is a vegan-friendly kitchen operating in the Zion UCC Center for Spiritual Development and Healing. We generally offer lunch every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday beginning at 11:30am.  Our focus is on fresh, sustainably-grown ingredients and we are committed to local sourcing to the greatest extent possible. We bake our own bread, make our own stocks, and know exactly what is in everything we serve.

We provide a different meal each day. Our daily menu can be found on our Facebook page:

Our meals are pay-what-you-can. We accept cash, or payment through PayPal at

We open at 11:30 a.m.  We stop serving by 2pm, but because of the special nature of our preparations we often run out of lunches before 2:00.

We recommend you pre-order your lunch(es) for eat-in or carry-out by texting your order to Peggy at 812-204-1182 before 11:00am the morning you plan to eat. Peggy will respond to confirm your order.

Non-reserved lunches may be available on a first-come-first-serve basis.

We’re located one block NW of the new downtown YMCA next to the Lloyd Expressway. Parking is available in the parking lot beside the church.  Enter the double doors on the SE side of the building and head downstairs.  Feel free to browse the used books and magazines available in Linda’s Little Book Shop, and look at (even purchase) artwork in Mindscapes Art Gallery adjoining the dining area.

We look forward to seeing you for lunch!
