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.
As well as delivering nutritious meals to homebound Santa Feans, we also offer such programs as Encore Bites – a monthly bag filled with healthy snacks, Pet Angels – pet food provided to our clients with cats or dogs and Caring Callers – volunteers are paired with interested clients for a once-a-week telephone call simply to ask about their day and provide a lending ear. In our 32 years of service we have prepared and delivered over 2 million free meals to 8,211 clients by 5,000 volunteers…and counting.
Onsite we also have our resale store Kitchenality selling gently used kitchenware and entertaining ware benefiting Kitchen Angels.
The Santa Fe Community Foundation invited its nonprofit grantees to submit stories related to our January topic of Health & Human Services.
