Opportunity Kitchen is a 12-week food service training program which offers hands-on culinary instruction and soft skills development courses to those with disabilities as well as people facing other documented barriers. This program provides hands-on food service training for people who need extra support to overcome employment barriers. For some, they may be overcoming substance abuse, mental illness, homelessness, incarceration, or they may be living with an intellectual or physical disability.

Students spend 12 weeks alongside an Executive Chef instructor as they cover a comprehensive curriculum to prepare them for food service or hospitality employment. They learn skills such as safe food handling, cooking techniques, weighing and measuring ingredients, following recipes, catering and customer service, while also receiving program certification and a Food Handler Permit.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
