Kitchens for Good is a 501(c)(3) and social enterprise with the mission to break the
cycles of food waste, hunger, and poverty through innovate solutions in workforce
training, healthy food production, and social enterprise. Kitchens for Good bridges the
gap between wasted food and hunger by rescuing surplus and cosmetically imperfect
food from wholesalers and farmers and engaging students in a culinary apprenticeship program to transform these ingredients into nutritious meals for hungry families.
This approach addresses the most immediate need of hunger by feeding the food
lines, but also helps to shorten the line itself by giving unemployed people the skills to
become self-sufficient. Through the power of kitchens and cooking, our students
transform their lives from one of addiction, incarceration, homelessness, and
unemployment, to lives of stability, employment, and a brighter future.
Ultimately, KFG believes that kitchens can be economic engines for good in their
communities. In addition to tackling issues of food waste, hunger and poverty,
Kitchens for Good ensures its own sustainability by building a profitable food enterprise
at the core of every kitchen. These enterprises include a robust catering and events
operation, a line of retail condiments, and contract meal services. Through these
enterprises we create job training opportunities for our culinary students, and generate
profits to reinvest into social programs. Kitchens for Good breaks the mold of typical
non-profits by generating 69% of its budget through social enterprise revenue,
reducing its reliance on philanthropy.
Please consider giving for a great cause.
