Feeding More Than Stomachs

At Lust for Cooking, we would like to salute a new Food Champion.

Episcopal Community Services in Kansas City, Missouri has launched an innovative food kitchen that does more than settle a growling stomach. The kitchen is run like a traditional restaurant with servers and table service. This allows the homeless that come by in search of meal to experience the same self-worth as the employed. “It doesn’t cost anything extra to serve with dignity,” says the CEO, Beau G. Heyen.

In addition, they have also started a 6-month vocational program where those in need of work skills can participate in the food preparation and service. The goal is that these people can come into the food kitchen looking for a meal, and walk out with marketable skills that lead to a job.

This is the kind of novel thinking we love to see at Lust for Cooking. More proof that cooking just might save the world.
