Community Kitchen & Farmer’s Market

Community Kitchen Vision

An important part of our vision is not only to serve nutritious food to our students but also to reach out to and serve the surrounding community.  A kitchen is a resource that could make a meaningful difference in the lives of many of our neighbors, and we are committed to opening our doors to those in need. Through our food subscription service, educational programs, vocational programs, and soup kitchen, we intend to build a strong connection to the surrounding community.


Farmer’s Market
