Over $47,000 was raised during the annual event which was held virtually this year.
Thank you to all who donated, purchased a dinner ticket, or tuned in during our 30th Annual Mama’s Day live broadcast on May 7th.
If you missed the show, click here to watch it on YouTube! While we certainly hope to return to being in person next year, we had a blast seeing everyone in our virtual photo-booth and transforming our CEO, Alberto Cortés, into the next cooking television show host.
Mama’s Day raised just over $47,000 in support of our nutrition services, providing healing meals to critically ill individuals across San Diego County. And we are excited to share that, with your support, we met our $10,000 Fund-A-Meal match offered by Sycuan Casino Resort.
Mama’s Kitchen strives to provide nutritional support to San Diego residents at risk of malnutrition due to critical illness such as HIV, cancer, congestive heart failure and type 2 diabetes, and chronic kidney disease. Together with hundreds of volunteers, businesses, and community supporters, Mama’s Kitchen strives to help our 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.
