Feeding the community

Students and graduates of GO Kitchen Ready feed the community — literally. Lunches prepared by students are currently offered to the public noon-1 p.m. Monday-Wednesday, and a three-course pop-up dinner is served 5:30-7 p.m. Thursdays at the Southside Kitchen, Arthur R. Edington Education and Career Center, 133 Livingston St. Meals are free, but donations are welcomed, with contributions going directly to the students as a stipend.

Students and graduates of the program also help prepare grab-and-go snacks for the cooler at the Eddington Center, which are offered for free 3-6 p.m. Monday-Friday. Catering services are also available through Kitchen Ready Industries, an adjunct of Kitchen Ready, which offers culinary employment opportunities to graduates.

Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.
