Our Programs

  • Project Launch is Kitchens for Good’s tuition-free, 20-month CA state certified Apprenticeship program offering Culinary, Baking, and Food Service Management tracks for individuals facing significant barriers to employment. The program equips students with the technical skills, workforce readiness instruction, case management, and industry certification needed to become sustainably employed and self-sufficient.
  • Food Waste Reduction: Kitchens for Good is committed to help reduce food waste, a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions, by practicing root-to-stem and nose-to-tail cooking (using the whole ingredient) as much as is possible in a commercial and teaching kitchen environment. In partnership with a number of community organizations, Kitchens for Good is helping educate San Diegans on food waste issues and provide useful tools to make both residential and commercial food waste reduction more accessible.
  • The Kitchens for Good SHOP: resells donated gently-used (and new) kitchenware, cookware, dinnerware, select home decor and specialty food items. Proceeds from all sales go to support Kitchens for Good’s current and developing impact programs.
