Calendar of Events
Come celebrate with Mama and enjoy an evening of eclectic wine tastings complemented by a sumptuous selection of hors d'oeuvres at our 17th Annual Wine Tasting on August 16th, at Bourbon Street Bar & Grill.
"Given the continued increased demand for our services, our annual Wine Tasting is an important event for Mama's Kitchen," says Alberto Cortés, Executive Director of Mama's Kitchen. "The proceeds allow us to continue to provide life-sustaining nutrition to our neighbors battling AIDS or cancer. We are grateful to everyone who supports this wonderful event, helping us to provide responsive and meaningful services to our community."
Executive Director's Message
As we approach the first anniversary of residence at our Home Avenue facility, we are thrilled to see the promise of our new home transform into a reality. At this mid-year point we are experiencing an increase in the number of meals that we are delivering - 24,400 more meals than over this period last year. And Mama's Pantry continues to see more clients each month. In June we had 464 visits.
