SUSTAINABLE, LASTING IMPACT
Kindred Kitchen prioritizes sustainability in supporting ecological, social, and economic health and vitality. And we are putting actions behind our words.
We are reducing our environmental footprint through nearly all compostable packaging, ultra-energy efficient equipment, and sourcing mostly local, seasonal ingredients whenever we can. We promote the use of our reusable dishware and educate our staff, trainees and the public in reducing their waste.
SOCIAL & ECONOMIC IMPACT
For us, creating sustainable impact transcends the physical space. We support social sustainability by valuing diversity and creating an inclusive, welcoming space for all people. We are helping to build a vibrant community of strong local small businesses.
As a social enterprise, we provide high-quality food services that nourish the community, while our training program fosters the growth of our local economy as new graduates leave our program and enter the workforce to share their skills with other local employers. As their lives stabilize, they are creating a positive ripple effect on not only their own lives, but on the economic vitality of our region.
