Caridad Community Kitchen is built on the principle that hunger in our community can be solved in many ways. We offer free community meals for anyone in need, healthy home-delivered meals for seniors, and a culinary and job skills training program for low-income or unemployed individuals.
Whether we’re building successful careers in the foodservice industry or providing meals to those who need them, Caridad Community Kitchen is changing lives one meal at a time.

In partnership with Catholic Community Services, Pima Council on Aging, and other local nonprofits, we prepare healthy, delicious meals to be home-delivered to seniors—over 1,500 meals a day! All meals are expertly crafted to meet the specific nutritional needs of older adults—and, of course, made with love.
Our culinary training program provides opportunities for motivated individuals to learn new skills, gain confidence, and succeed in new careers—all while providing meals for the hungry in our community.
Our Culinary Training Program is now accepting applications for our 32nd Class which will take place from Monday, May 2nd through Friday, July 8th.
