Annual Mama’s Kitchen Food Drive

Thursday, October 22 - Monday, November 30

With the tremendous support from their community, Mama’s Kitchen prepares and delivers nutritious meals for their neighbors struggling with AIDS or cancer who are too sick to shop and cook for themselves. Together with hundreds of volunteers, businesses, and community supporters, Mama’s Kitchen strives to help their clients stay healthy, preserve their dignity, and keep their families together by providing free, culturally appropriate home-delivered meals, along with pantry services and nutrition education.

At Mama’s Kitchen, they envision a community where all individuals with critical illnesses are no longer vulnerable to hunger.

This year we have the opportunity to support them through two different virtual fundraisers.

    1. Virtual Pantry: As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mama’s Kitchen has experienced a 65% increase in demand for their Home-Delivered Meal Service. They continue to accept new referrals for critically ill clients and their dependent children, to ensure that our most vulnerable neighbors receive the nutrition they need, while remaining safe at home. With increased demand comes increased costs to accommodate our community members and Mama’s Kitchen is asking for your help.Please help us support Mama’s Kitchen by making a Virtual Food Drive donation through our page. The process is fast, easy and secure.

      Thanks so much for your support and please don’t forget to send this page to any friends you think might be interested in donating!
