Kirk Salzer


Chef Kirk Salzer is part of our amazing kitchen team and he’s happy to be here! He has lived in Boulder for twenty years and says many of his life experiences have prepared him for working with us. Kirk served as a cook in the Navy and has worked in high end restaurants and as a caterer. He’s also worked in human services, primarily with disabled individuals. “There’s so much I like about being here! The volunteers are great and our cooking team is a great fit, too. I love the freedom to be creative and to experiment with different ideas. I like to be part of a growing organization, and these are exciting times at Meals on Wheels of Boulder!” Kirk’s leisure time passions include fly fishing and playing music — he calls himself a “campfire musician.” As Member at Large on the board for the LeftHand Artist Group, Kirk says he’s inspired by his wife of twenty-three years. She is an artist, very creative and active in the arts. Kirk says he loves our “honest mission statement,” and he wishes more people understood how important we are to the folks who receive our services. “We don’t simply deliver food … there is a great deal of value in the social interaction our clients enjoy with our volunteers.” We’re so glad you are part of the family, Captain Kirk!
