The board of directors and volunteers of Carol’s Kitchen join with the community to send our condolences to her family and close acquaintances."

Our mission is to strengthen the San Gorgonio Pass of Southern California by ensuring the men, women and children of our communities do not go hungry—regardless of their age, religion, cultural background, employment or economic status, and physical and mental abilities.
Our organization was created in the memory of Carol Ragan who was killed by a drunk driver in 1996. The last entry in her private diary was, “Ask your heart what is right and follow it.” That remains Carol’s Kitchen’s motto to this day.
Carol’s parents, Jim and Arlene Ragan, founded Carol’s Kitchen on April 21, 1998. Since that time, we have grown from one small kitchen to six large ones, and have served over 800,000 meals to the hungry. Watch the video to learn our story, or read more.
We want to alleviate this growing issue.HELP NOW
