49.7% of elders in our neighborhood live under the poverty line, and this is why La Cocina Social exists. Whenever you visit our campus, you will experience the smell, the love, and the generosity of our Social Kitchen. And from this wonderful space, we have served more than 60,000 meals since 2021. Meals we cook are certified by a nutritionist, while taking into consideration local produce and the participants we serve. As of fall 2023, 205 meals are cooked and delivered three days a week to families our social workers identified. Our deliveries are healthy, consistent, and a necessary service for the elderly and adults with disabilities. Our current goal is to deliver meals to 300 families every day by the end of 2024. Help our community and invest in the impact we can make.
We're reimagining what it means to be a non-profit. Every donation to The Happy Givers becomes healthy meals, safer homes, brand new jobs, and seeds for the harvest. Whether you buy a t-shirt or send us a monetary gift, know that it helps real people with real needs. Our goal is also to help those around us by being a LOCAL non-profit, led by local leaders, empowered by our local store. There's still much to accomplish, and that's where you come in.
All we need now is your generosity!
Every dollar sent will become healthy meals, job training and job creation, actual seeds for the harvest, and materials for home rebuilding.
When you shop at the happy givers store you both support our local business and empower our local team (while donating to our local community).
Hosting you will be our joy! We love it when people visit, work hard and sweat, cook with our team, smile big, and enjoy the beaches in our town. Don’t miss out.
