Teach. Nourish. Empower.
At Liberty’s Kitchen, we help young people access futures that are healthy and sustainable, enabling them to achieve personal and economic independence in adulthood.
Liberty’s Kitchen’s Youth Development Program provides disconnected young people with workforce and life skills training to become employed and self-sufficient. We empower them in a culinary setting with the resources, tools, and the confidence to transform their lives. Our cafe located at 300 N Broad serves both as the training ground for our young people and as a means of generating revenue for our programming.
Through our School Nutrition Program, we provide undernourished school children with healthy, scratch-made meals prepared fresh onsite at their schools. By ensuring that low-income students have access to better nutrition and nutrition education in school, Liberty’s Kitchen contributes to the fight to end the epidemic of childhood obesity and increase youth achievement.
"To be a leader is to be someone who understands the day-to-day struggle and can transform that understanding into a call to action." Learn more about our Youth Leadership Program!
