"I love the food!
—Adam, a student at the United Way Early Learning Center at Kaune

Please note: Due to new restrictions and COVID-19, we are accepting volunteer applications for Kids Kitchen, but there are no available shifts at this time. Thank you for your interest! 

We are looking for individuals to assist with Kids Kitchen food prep and to serve food at specific sites.  Kids Kitchen is a joint venture of The Food Depot and United Way of Santa Fe County. This commercial kitchen will provide prepared meals for
The Food Depot's children's hunger initiatives as well as the United Way Early Learning Center at Kaune. 


If you are interested in preparing meals for our community's youth with an innovative new project and learning some food prep skills along the way, this opportunity is for you! Food Safety for Handler's training is required and volunteers must agree to a background check screening because Kids Kitchen is located in the United Way Early Learning Center at Kaune. The background check and training are at no cost to the volunteer. 

Call Sarah at 505-471-1633, ext. 115, or email for more information about volunteering and sign up with Kids Kitchen.
