Caridad Meal Sites

Caridad Meal Sites

An average of 14,000 meals served to those in need, every month.

With your support, we’re working to ensure that no one in our community goes to bed hungry.

Can you imagine having to decide between buying food, obtaining medical care, or paying rent?

Far too many people in Pima County are faced with these decisions every day. But, no one should have to be. With your help, at Caridad Community Kitchen, we make it easy for people in need to get food, every day of the week. On average, we serve more than 450 meals every day of the week.

Planned and prepared by our Executive Chef, Sous Chef, Kitchen Assistant, culinary students, and dedicated volunteers, meals feature nutritious foods that offer comfort and sustenance. These balanced meals consist of a protein source (such as chicken, turkey, or lamb), a starch (such as rice or potatoes), and a vegetable or a fruit. Bonus items, when available, include bread and dessert.

Sack lunches are distributed at our kitchen, as well as at Sister Jose Women’s Shelter, Holy Family Church, and to children in after school programs. Hot meals are distributed at churches and walk-in sites across town throughout the week.

We also reach people who would otherwise not seek out a meal at another site by handing out soup and hot chocolate during the winter months and sack lunches to drop-in cooling centers during the summer months. These distribution services occur throughout the homeless corridor in and around downtown Tucson.

Are you in need of a meal? We can help! A printable version of this schedule is also available here.
