Common Ground Kitchen serves fresh, flavorful plant-based lunches Monday through Thursday from 11:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m at the Zion Center for Spiritual Development & Healing, 518 Ingle Street in downtown Evansville, Indiana.

Dine in or carry out. Pay what you can. We accept cash and Paypal.




All meals are plant-based and vegan-friendly. Most are naturally gluten-free. When we include an item that contains gluten, we will usually have a gluten-free option available, so please ask. 

We occasionally serve meals that contain peanuts or tree nuts. When we do, these are clearly indicated on the menu.

Pay what you can. A minimum of $7 per meal will help keep the lights on. 

Thank you for being a part of the Common Ground community. We’re glad you’re here.
