Abuela’s Kitchen

Program Participants can participate in Abuela’s Kitchen.  This is a social project we run and fund providing free meals for elderly persons living in poverty.

We regard Abuela’s Kitchen as a club with members, rather than recipients or beneficiaries.  Unfortunately, the 25 members qualify for membership by virtue of their challenging economic situations

The project is open from Monday to Friday each week, and from 10 am to 2 pm.  There we have a small team to welcome members, provide a quality, nutritious lunch each day.  And also allow members the opportunity to socialize each day.

This project began in October 2016, and as of October 2019, our team at Abuela’s Kitchen had provided over 22,500 nutritious and delicious meals.

Get Involved

For nutrition program participants, Abuela’s Kitchen will form part of their community program.  Our community nutritionist, Iris, has devised the menus for the project and also provides weekly assessments and consultations for our members.

Other program participants can visit the project anytime while here.
