‘Kitchens For Good’ Gives Those in Need a Second-Chance With Culinary Careers

 In Food

Kitchens for Good, located in the Joe and Vi Jacobs Center, has transformed the lives of hundreds of individuals by providing tuition-free culinary job training to formerly incarcerated adults, survivors of domestic violence and more.

“I was going down the wrong path, living a life of crime, living a dangerous lifestyle. Four months ago, I was sitting in a cold prison cell. Today, I’m a chef”, said Tee Smith, a recent Kitchens for Good program graduate .

Kitchens for Good also works directly with farmers and wholesale companies to rescue surplus or cosmetically imperfect produce that might otherwise go to waste. These food donations are then used to make healthy meals for those in need.
