Activities & Fundraising
● Community Kitchen Project: Offers FREE hospitality & culinary arts training to individuals that may be facing obstacles in obtaining steady employment. This program offers guidance to those in need while simultaneously feeding the less fortunate in our community. We strive to empower by supplying members with an invaluable skill set and assisting with job placement upon completion of the program. This will grant people connected to the Kitchen Project the ability to support themselves and their families! - Within our Community Kitchen Project, we offer a catering service. We have had the opportunity to give our students even more hands-on experience by fulfilling catering orders within the community. We are currently catering to schools and churches and the word is spreading quickly. All proceeds from catering orders go directly to support the upcoming opening of the Community Café.
● Servesafe® Classes: Taught in a user-friendly, informative, and upbeat manner. This class includes a Raise-The-Grade® study notebook, and Servesafe® food handler guide. Our classes are located in convenient and comfortable locations. We provide everything needed to not only pass the exam, but leave with a renewed conviction for the industry.
