The Maryland Food Bank is a major force throughout Maryland and distributes enough food to provide more than 37 MILLION meals throughout the state annually. In 2010, they decided they wanted to do even more and started FoodWorks, a 12 week culinary training program with job readiness and placement support. They have prepared 200+ graduates for culinary employment since the program’s inception.

The Catalyst Kitchens model is designed to create long-term pathways out of poverty rather than quick fixes. We know that hard culinary skills can help get a student a job and soft skills, like teamwork and communication, will help them KEEP a job. Catalyst Kitchens training programs provide this support to develop long-term career plans with wage progression and career advancement.
