Every community has the right ingredients.
We meet members where they are. Every community has:
A willing and competent workforce of people eager to overcome the issues that are creating barriers to their employment
Access to the tools, training and support they need to succeed
The job and life skills development that can ensure employment in a stable and growing industry
We help turn those ingredients into a solution
Our team brings a wealth of experience to help organizations create high-impact, individualized solutions for their communities. We work closely with member organizations to launch and sustain foodservice job training programs based on the FareStart model.
Our strength is in our diversity
Catalyst Kitchens works with organizations from New Orleans to Fairbanks, Alaska. Through our consulting work, we help organizations harness the ingredients in their community to address their needs.
We learn from one another
The true strength of our network is in our willingness to share and learn from one another. We are able to have an exponential impact—both individually and collectively—because we can adapt best practices and successful innovations from each member organization to increase the ability of every member organization to better serve their community.
Accelerate your impact
Our members are breaking down barriers to employment and breaking the cycles of joblessness, poverty, and hunger.
