Caring Kitchen Project

NCOs Caring Kitchen (update September 21, 2020)

NCOs Caring Kitchen Project was JUST announced as the most recent winner of the 100 Women Strong fundraiser! We are both thrilled and humbled to have been selected!

Covid-19 is a serious public health crisis, we have adjusted our program to continue to serve those most in need, but our costs have increased and we are unable to have our regular fundrasing events. This contribution allows The Caring Kitchen to continue to serve meals to cancer patients and those that are medically fragile in inland Mendocino County. 

Watch our winning submission video here and if you would like to contribute and help us to continue to serve our clients, please use the donation button to the right of this page.

Chronic diseases account for the four leading causes of death in Mendocino County, with cancer (including lung cancer) and heart disease causing over 50% of all deaths, followed by stroke and chronic lower respiratory diseases. Prevention is key, and experiencing healthier living through quality, vegetable-rich meals is just what the Caring Kitchen Project is all about.
