Dorothy's Kitchen

  • Dorothy's Place, Salinas CA

Dorothy’s Kitchen is a full-service, commercial kitchen serving delicious meals from fresh ingredients. Culinary professionals and volunteers serve breakfast from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and lunch from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. every day of the year, including weekend and holidays.  

Upwards of 400 free meals are served daily. On special occasions, such as Thanksgiving, we exceed that number and will serve nearly 1,000 meals.

We have multiple partners throughout the Monterey County community that support our nutritional program; however, we are always searching for new organizations to join us by either supplying food staples, volunteering, or both.  If you wish to join us in feeding the poor, please contact us
