WHO WE ARE
Bracken’s Kitchen is a 501(c)(3) organization based in Orange County California. Founded in 2013 our mission is simple: Through food rescue, culinary training and our community feeding program we are committed to rescuing, re-purposing and restoring both food and lives. The heart of who we are can be found in a statement first uttered in 1957 by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr; “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?”
At the core of our mission is a deep commitment to our nonprofit charity partners, business and professional supporters, volunteers, donors and employees. Our relationship with each and every one of these groups is as important to us as those we feed.
With their help we are committed to providing over 1.5 million tasty and nutritious meals in 2022.
Hunger affects people of all ages through out Orange County. The right to adequate food is the right to dignity and life! Families and individuals struggle to put food on the table as result of sudden emergencies, crisis. For some living below the poverty line, it's a long term struggle.
In its simplest form, Bracken’s Kitchen delivers hot and nutritious meals in a fun, and dignified manner. The program serves the highest quality and most nutritious meals that their clients will get all week.
YOU CAN HELP
At Bracken’s Kitchen we believe that we all share two universal and powerful human needs that run deep within. The need to breathe and the need to eat. As we all know however, air is free and food is not.
Bracken’s Kitchen was founded with the sole intent of using food to make a difference in the lives of those we serve. For the 12 million kids in the U.S. facing hunger, getting the energy they need to learn and grow can be a day-in, day-out challenge.
