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, cards, and Paypal.




All meals are plant-based and vegan-friendly. Most are naturally gluten-free, and when they’re not, we typically have a gluten-free option available, so please ask. 

We sometimes serve meals or desserts that contain peanuts or tree nuts. If you are nut-sensitive, please let us know. 

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

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