ORGANIZATION: Mama's Kitchen

Mama's Kitchen strives to provide nutritional support to San Diego residents at risk of malnutrition due to critical illnesses such as HIV, cancer, congestive heart failure, type 2 diabetes, and chronic kidney disease. Together with hundreds of volunteers, businesses, and community supporters, Mama's Kitchen strives to help their clients stay healthy, preserve their dignity, and keep their families together by providing, medically tailored home-delivered meals, along with pantry services and nutrition education - all at no cost.

Phone/Office Support Volunteers direct callers to the appropriate department or staff person, provide general information about Mama's Kitchen to callers with staff training and resource materials, and support administrative functions of various departments with mailing, sorting, and filing tasks. Based on interest level, volunteers can support project-related tasks for program staff.
