YouthWorks Culinary Team Providing Meals from El Rancho de las Golondrinas Kitchen

Beginning March 26, the YouthWorks Culinary Team is joining with Santa Fe Public Schools to cook and distribute nutritious, reheatable meals to Santa Fe youth ages 1-18. The team, working out of the commercial kitchen at El Rancho de las Golondrinas Living History Museum, will be preparing take-and-go boxes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Pickup for these meals is Monday through Friday, 10:30am – 12:30pm at Chaparral Elementary, Ramirez Thomas Elementary, Aspen Elementary, and Kearny Elementary. In addition, Santa Fe Public Schools will offer breakfast and lunch pickup at Capital High and Sweeney Elementary 10:30am-12:30pm weekdays.

Founded in 2001, YouthWorks is a cutting-edge, innovative organization offering a continuum of services designed to reconnect “at-risk” and disadvantaged youth with our community through education, employment training, and job placement.

El Rancho de las Golondrinas is the Southwest’s Premier Living History Museum dedicated to preserving the history and cultures of New Mexico and providing unique hands-on-history experiences.

Working out of the commercial kitchen at El Rancho de las Golondrinas Living History Museum, YouthWorks is the primary food vendor for all of the museum’s festivals June through October.

Both El Rancho de las Golondrinas and YouthWorks are honored to be working together to help our community in this time of need.

Fire & Hops Fundraiser

Come out mid-week, have a beer and some tasty food and at the same time lend your support to El Rancho de las Golondrinas!

On Wednesday, June 7, from 5:00 to 9:30pm, Fire & Hops Gastropub, 222 North Guadalupe in Santa Fe, will be hosting a fundraising event for us.  Owner and manager, Josh Johns, has agreed to donate 10% of all sales including drinks (after tax and comps) to El Rancho de las Golondrinas!

Fire & Hops Gastropub is a folksy, upscale neighborhood pub with a locally sourced menu of small and large plates plus artisanal ciders.  It serves high quality food and superb beverages at prices typical of a neighborhood eatery.  Fire & Hops is dedicated to the following four guiding principles:  local; sustainable; quality; friendly.

There will be a tap takeover on Wednesday night by Great Divide Brewing out of Denver.  They will be offering four to five specialty brews on tap plus there will be several food specials. This is a great opportunity for you to taste some new beers, mingle with your friends and family, and share some lively conversation.

No reservations necessary.  Bring your family, friends and neighbors for a lovely evening!  Hope to see you there!
