Kristen Culliney
program manager for Caridad Community Kitchen

Changing people’s lives, one meal at a time.

Sitting at the edge of the Dunbar-Spring neighborhood, north of downtown, in Tucson, Arizona, Caridad Community Kitchen lives in an ordinary, gray-block building. But what takes place inside is anything but.

A program of the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona, Caridad, Spanish for charity, has touched the lives of countless people for more than 15 years.

Featuring a feeding program at congregate meal sites, a 10-week culinary training program for unemployed and underemployed individuals, and a full catering service, Caridad is built on the principle that hunger in our community can be solved in many ways.
