Burrito Cooks Needed Sunday Mornings!

We are looking for cooks to take a regular shift one Sunday per month to cook for the Burrito Project, the weekly food distribution project serving the people of Santa Fe.
What's involved:

  • 2.5 hours one Sunday per month from approx. 8:30 to 11:00 AM
  • Insuring that the beans are set up to soak on Saturday (either do it yourself before satsang or arrange for someone to do it)
  • Prepare the beans and oversee the preparation of the burritos on Sunday morning.
  • Training provided - One Sunday to learn and one Sunday to solo with oversight from a "pro".
  • The 3rd & 4th Sunday of each month are available.

Email Vandana at if you are able to assist with this wonderful & rewarding service to the community of Santa Fe.

Or, you can read more about the project here!


Satsang Cooks Needed Saturday Nights (and dessert too)!

Do you enjoy cooking? We are looking for volunteers to cook Satsang dinner on Saturday nights. The task of cooking for about 30 people may seem daunting, but, it can be simple and we can provide you with recipes if you need ideas. Please call us if you have any questions. Meals should be vegetarian, and all expenses are reimbursed. In the winter months you will need 4WD or AWD to cook at the ashram, but if you deliver the meal, we will arrange a shuttle for you. 

We also need people to SIGN UP to bring desserts. Email Susie or call 505-690-7914 to sign up!
