The Social Kitchen (La Cocina Social)

Nutritious food to support our elderly neighbors

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.
