Derek and kids

Thinking about joining us? You are amazing!

Compassion Kitchens is 100% volunteer powered and all of our financial, administrative, and development tasks are handled by our amazing volunteer team. If you are interested in becoming part of something amazing, check out our current openings on VolunteerMatch.

Another great way to help support our mission and the children we serve, is by sharing our page with your friends and family. Telling others about our mission and our work is one of the best ways to spread awareness and to support us. Thank you! 💚

Want to volunteer at one of our partner kitchens?

Our Colombian partner kitchens are always happy to accept international volunteers and support. Because 100% of our donations go directly to food purchases for children, we are not able to provide any financial support, insurance, housing, etc. for independent volunteers that wish to visit and work in Colombia. However, we are able to put you in contact with the kitchens and we can help coordinate your trip. All associated costs (airfare, housing, food) will need to be covered by the volunteer. All of the kitchens and kids we work with are struggling in extreme poverty zones, so we ask that any visitors provide small private donations of kitchen supplies or ingredients in return for their opportunity to visit and work with the kids. Anyone interested in volunteering with the kids and kitchens in Colombia please contact us at
