Mission

"I've always felt that food is one of the best ways to build bridges and bring people together from different backgrounds." Our mission is to help the refugee community by empowering them to use their skills to help their families, while increasing their dignity by working rather than asking for help. Our business model is built upon social benefit for those in need. We're interested primarily in helping people help themselves by becoming productive members of society who contribute to their community – I think that is the best way to integrate into life here in America. It's been said before, but we want to give people a hand up instead of a handout.
