About Culinary Angels
Culinary Angels is a volunteer, donation-based organization that provides nutrient-rich meals and nutrition education to people going through a serious health challenge. Meals are delivered free-of- charge throughout Livermore, Dublin, Pleasanton, San Ramon, and Danville California, and about 95% of our recipients are actively going through cancer treatment.
Our program believes that caregivers play a critical part in a person’s ability to heal and recover. Therefore we provide meals not only to the recipient, but to their caregiver in a effort to support the stress and responsibilities that can often go along with this role.
Culinary Angels was created to not only provide hope, health and wellness, but the opportunity to exemplify nutritional education to its recipients. Our service visually represents a healthy, healing meal, as well as providing critical ingredients that promote fortification at a time in a person’s life where they can experience the benefits.
Our volunteers are trained to cook with as many organic ingredients as possible and focus on nutrient-rich, plant-based, seasonal ingredients. Emphasis is placed on using cruciferous vegetables, sea vegetables and homemade broths in our soups. Culinary Angels believes this philosophy will help promote health, wellness, and hope to people who are compromised by their challenge. Organic, healing foods are an important part of our bodies' natural instinct to be well!
We are fortunate to partner with Fertile Groundworks and Sunflower Hill who together supply the majority of our produce! All vegetables are organic and locally cultivated. Culinary Angels is privileged to be a recipient of these beautiful and healthy vegetables.
We could not provide our service without the amazing partnership with Irby Ranch Pleasanton. Sunflower Hill at Irby Ranch allows Culinary Angels allows Culinary Angels full use of their industrial kitchen as well as endless support and encouragement.
Culinary Angels was founded by Lisa McNaney in November of 2016.
