Mission: In 1992, in response to the urgent needs of our community's most vulnerable members--people whose requirements were overlooked by traditional service providers--the Kitchen Angels meal program was designed to meet the unique individual nutritional needs and special dietary requirements of each of its clients. Serving the frail elderly who require special diets and the homebound under the age of 60, Kitchen Angels supports the self-sufficiency of those who might otherwise be forced to accept institutional living. Kitchen Angels allows members of our community to remain in the comfort of their home to experience independence and live with dignity even while they face a life-threatening condition.
Programs: Kitchen angels is a volunteer organization devoted to delivering hot wholesome meals to santa feans who through illness or other circumstances might do without. Volunteers help provide meals and visitation to those in need.
Kitchen Angels prepares and delivers nutritious and delicious meals to homebound people with chronic illnesses who live alone and cannot shop for or prepare food on their own. Approximately 125 people are served five days a week. For many of the clients, the smiling volunteer who delivers their meal is the only human contact they have on any given day. Kitchen Angels operates with a small staff of 2 full-time and 3 part-time employees who over-see the more than 200 people who participate in cooking and delivering each week. I've been involved with this organization for over 12 years and am awed by the service and devotion this group offers to our community!
