How do I give?

You can use PayPal to give securely online.  All funds are held by the not-for-profit Freeport Downtown Development Foundation, the project’s fiscal agent.  Financial gifts will be used to renovate 1 W Stephenson St, purchase equipment, and support kitchen operations.  Contact us at pretzelcitykitchens [at] with questions about tax-deductible giving. You may also send checks payable to the Freeport Downtown Development Foundation (with Pretzel City Kitchens in the memo line) and mail them to:
