Catalyst Kitchens Regional Summits

Local Social Impact
Regional summits connect local programs to share opportunities & challenges in the foodservice job training model.

Catalyst Kitchens holds regional summits annually to create local community with the shared mission of increasing access to job training through the foodservice job training program model. 

These summits provide an opportunity for staff to meet their peers in-person, build relationships regionally, and explore shared opportunities & challenges. 

Catalyst Kitchens members receive free event registration to one Regional Summit for a select number of staff each year. See our member's portal & events calendar for more details on how to access free Summit registration.
