How you can help:


Host an event during our fundraising campaign, November 15 - December 15, to promote and support our initiatives. We’ll show our short film made by Emmy-winning cinematographer John Barnhardt and give a short talk about what we do. Volunteers will be on site to answer questions and collect donations.

Run a menu item during our fundraising campaign with a portion of the proceeds going to support Bread + Butter.

Get involved with one of our current programs as a chef instructor and sponsor restaurant by committing to teaching a one hour class twice during our 12-week training and to hiring one student per year.

Contribute to the cause. Financial donations can be made directly to us or through this website. In kind donations such as food, beverage, event space, and food service items are all appreciated donations. These donations are all tax-deductible.


We currently have a waiting list of chefs and culinary training programs who want us to support them with training and placement services. These programs include after school programs for at risk youth, several high school culinary programs and programs that work with non-violent offenders. We want to raise $50,000 during our fundraising campaign to help us expand and support these vital programs within our community.
