Congratulations to Michael Sykes, kitchen assistant and volunteer of the month for March 2019! Michael was nominated by fellow volunteer Dee Frembgen, who said:
“I would like to nominate Michael Sykes for volunteer of the month. Michael has been a volunteer for Project Angel Heart since August of 2011 and works on the Thursday morning kitchen crew. Michael is consistently here on time, often riding his bike to his volunteer assignment. When Michael arrives, he welcomes everyone with a smile, bringing a lot of heart to our volunteer group! Michael helps in all areas of our task load for the day, and Michael is always available to guide new volunteers through their shift so they have a positive experience. In addition to all that, Michael keeps the gang laughing with his humor and wit. We are so glad to have Michael on our shift and think he is deserving of the volunteer of the month award.”
As volunteer of the month, Michael will enjoy a special dinner prepared by Project Angel Heart’s chefs.

At Project Angel Heart, good things start in a skillet. 🍳
Hearty stews. Veggie-infused macaroni and cheese. Chicken curry and garden vegetable scrambles. Food that helps nourish and strengthen people living with life-threatening illnesses like cancer and kidney disease.
All of these delicious meals start in our 40-gallon tilt skillets. But as we’ve grown, we’ve started hitting the limit of what we can do with our five trusty tilt skillets. We need to add one more skillet to the team… and we need your help to do it! Continue reading →
In Colorado’s rural areas, a small number of people with complex medical diagnoses are now receiving meals from Project Angel Heart! Our distribution coordinator, Matt Nigro, explains how we’re getting medically tailored meals to more people who need them.
Through Project Angel Heart’s core program, volunteers deliver meals to clients across 750 square miles of metro Denver and Colorado Springs. While we’re proud to serve such a large area, when you take a look at Colorado as a whole, there’s a strong need in rural areas for food assistance, especially with a nutritional focus. Shipping our frozen meals presents an exciting way to serve Coloradans we’ve never reached before! Continue reading →
This is a new recipe created by our sous chef, Summer Polson. In October, when we started cooking and delivering 40 percent more meals each week, we also made a big change to our menu: incorporating a weekly vegetarian meal. We have had fun figuring out different things we can do with eggs, and this recipe was an instant hit! So much so that a volunteer who was here dishing up the meal for clients requested the recipe. Here it is—we hope you enjoy!
