Dorothy’s Kitchen is a full-service, commercial kitchen serving delicious meals from fresh ingredients.
Amid the COVID-19 crisis, we’re still offering twice-daily meals to be picked up at the door.
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.
During this COVID-19 shelter-in-place period, our meal consumption has INCREASED by 33%. Now, 600 free meals are served daily, “to-go" style, which creates special challenges for our Kitchen crew. WE NEED SANDWICHES! We prefer to serve a hot breakfast and hot lunch, but on days when we’re short on team members, a hot, homemade soup and bag lunch to-go hits the spot!
On special occasions, such as Thanksgiving, we exceed that number and will serve nearly 1,000 meals, so remember to check back in October and get on the Thanksgiving volunteer sign-up list for a special holiday experience!
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 Kitchen Manager Julieta Borges, firstname.lastname@example.org or call (831) 276-5123.
