Years Serving the Community
The number of people in our area who need help to get adequate nutrition is constantly growing. El Caldito is part of the solution, and we have expanded our services to try to keep up with the increasing need. Since 1984, El Caldito has grown from serving small meals to just a few people, to serving fully prepared, balanced meals to hundreds of people every day of the week. Almost every bit of the work we do is done by volunteers, and a great deal of the food we serve is donated or provided to us at low cost.
The following is a list of items that we are in urgent need of. Please consider donating and donations can be dropped off. Bottled Water Ground Coffee Powdered Coffee Creamer Individual Oatmeal Packets Individual Hot Chocolate Packets Spices; Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Ground Pepper, Seasoning......21 July, 2020 No comment
Save the date! October 18, 2019 Empty Bowls is truly a community effort to raise funds for El Caldito. As they do each year, Las Cruces Potters’ Guild members make more than 1,000 bowls for the event, local restaurants donate gallons of soup, NMSU students......18 July, 2019 No comment
