Kitchens for Good

Guided by a mission to break the cycles of food waste, hunger, and poverty, Kitchens for Good rescues surplus and cosmetically imperfect food from wholesalers and farmers and runs a culinary apprenticeship initiative that uses these ingredients to create nutritious meals for food-insecure families.  The program is credited with creating 50,000 nutritious meals and training 90 people annually.  To generate revenue to support the nonprofit’s job training program, students also provide catering and contract meal services, and produce and sell savory spreads.  Nearly 70 percent of the nonprofit’s budget is generated through these entrepreneurial activities.
