Carol's Kitchen - Saint Kateri Tekakwitha Catholic Church

Due Date: 2026-05-28T21:00:00.000Z
Carol's Kitchen serves nutritious hot meals 4 days a week in Riverside County. Our mission is to serve those in need with dignity and compassion. That's why we make it a point to use high-quality ingredients and prepare our meals fresh on the mornings that we serve. All of our meals include: A protein, Vegetables, Salads, Juice, Coffee, Dessert. For children, we also serve peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or coldcut sandwiches with a snack. Thanks to our generous sponsors, we can also give our guests bags of fresh produce so they can receive nourishment even after leaving our kitchen. Volunteer Without our most valued volunteers, we would not be able to provide hot meals and clothing to over a thousand hungry people each week. We welcome all who are interested in serving our less fortunate neighbors by volunteering their time in support of our kitchen. We not only need volunteers to work in our kitchens, but we need cooks, kitchen managers and people willing to work behind the scenes supporting our many projects. Volunteers to the kitchens arrive between 8:00 and 8:30 to help prepare and serve meals and clean up afterward, usually leaving by 1:30 p.m. Behind-the-scenes volunteers can volunteer hours at their convenience to so such things as phone calls, letter writing, organizing events, etc. If you’re interested in volunteering, please contact us using the form below! Or to give in other ways, consider donating clothing to Carol’s Closet, or giving financially here, or giving financially through our secure paypal link.
