The Catalyst Kitchens Model
More than 1 in 7 Americans live in poverty—a cycle that is complex, generational and self-reinforcing.
Stronger together, the Catalyst Kitchens Network makes a collective impact on poverty, joblessness and hunger through our shared model.
Empowerment through Job Training
Foodservice job training, life skills development and targeted job placement create a pathway out of poverty.
Sustainability through Social Enterprise
Self-generated revenue through social enterprise businesses grows program sustainability.
Collaboration through Community Engagement
Collaboration with local government, non-profit partners and employers builds broad community impact.
