How you helpAs one of the largest volunteer programs in the area, we welcome an average of 600 volunteers per month to work in our kitchen, deliver meals, and help with our fundraising efforts. More than 53,000 volunteer hours are donated each year.
About usThe majority of our clients face hardships that would otherwise prevent access to nutritious meals. Critical illnesses do not discriminate, and at any point in time, anyone can receive a diagnosis of a debilitating disease. Our goals are to help our clients maintain their health and dignity and preserve the integrity of their families through culturally appropriate, home-delivered meals, nutrition education, and other community programs.
