News From the Kitchen
We are proud to announce that Liberty’s Kitchen has been awarded a 2017 Opportunity for All grant from The Starbucks Foundation! We welcome you to join us on August 16th at 12:00 PM to celebrate this milestone, and our long-standing partnership with Starbucks to create economic opportunities for youth in New Orleans.
Beyond great coffee and conversation, the event will be an opportunity to hear from leaders at Liberty’s Kitchen and Starbucks, and most importantly, celebrate the young men and women who we serve through employment and life skills training. With our newly announced Opportunity for All grant from Starbucks, we will be able to further our impact within the community through our employment training and leadership development programs, and continue our work providing freshly prepared, nutritious meals to local school children.
Building on over 20 years of giving, The Starbucks Foundation has a long legacy of investing in communities through support of organizations working to create job and education opportunities. With its new Opportunity for All initiative, the organization is deepening its focus on three populations – youth, veterans and military spouses, and refugees. Starbucks is proud to select Liberty’s Kitchen as an inaugural recipient of the 2017 Opportunity for All grants.
Please join us for a coffee tasting, brief remarks, and an open house with our Starbucks partners, Liberty’s Kitchen staff, volunteers, civic leaders and other special guests. We hope to see you there! Please feel free to RSVP to Jamie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
