Meet Kitchen Angels
Founded in 1992, Kitchen Angels serves residents of Santa Fe and other Northern New Mexico communities who are homebound, in a health crisis, lack the resources for regular meals, and are not eligible for other local meal services. Kitchen Angels believes no one in our community who is homebound because of a chronic, surgery-related, or terminal medical condition should ever go without appropriate nutrition. Making sure those in need have enough to eat is simply the right thing to do.
We formulate meals carefully to meet individual needs, serving healthy, fresh, and, when possible, local food to our clients. Hot meals are delivered five days a week and frozen meals are made available for the weekends. To serve more people, we keep our operating costs low by having only 5 paid staff persons and rely on an amazing, dedicated army of volunteers over 350 strong to cook, package, and deliver meals to our clients. In addition to meals, our volunteers provide a friendly face, a kind word, and encouragement to homebound individuals who may be isolated, alone, and without social support.
For 30 years Kitchen Angels has prepared and delivered over 1,800,000 meals to 7,693 clients by 4,000 volunteers.
