Liberty’s Kitchen Café and Coffee House provides a path to self-sufficiency through food service-based training, education and employment for at-risk youth. Its Contract Meals Program launched with support from Emeril Lagasse Foundation, and provides healthy from scratch meals to local charter schools. Training takes place in the Emeril Lagasse Foundation Teaching Kitchen at the café site.
Last month, Liberty’s Kitchen hosted the Emeril Lagasse Foundation’s Annual Board Dinner. The students were trained with the Emeril’s restaurant staff to learn back of house & front of house skills.
From a welcome reception to a seated dinner, the Liberty’s Kitchen students did a wonderful job serving a delicious meal to the Emeril Lagasse Foundation board members. After dinner, the students were given the opportunity to tell their stories. Despite their many challenges in life, each student was hopeful and seeking success.
By grabbing a quick cup of coffee, or eating breakfast or lunch at the Liberty’s Kitchen Café and Coffee House, you too can make a difference in a young person’s life. All proceeds from food and beverage service go directly to support Liberty’s Kitchen Youth Development Program. Open for breakfast and lunch, Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm and Saturday for breakfast and coffee from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm.
