2020 is the year where people are being asked to step up and work to create the future and the community we wish to see. We have been researching ways we can contribute to building a better world and are pleased to announce the launch of our next initiative, the Community Kitchen.
The Community Kitchen is a food service program providing complementary box lunches to in-need residents, families and health care workers in Chicago. For one month, we will provide 200 meals three times a week, to local senior housing complexes, food pantries, churches, hospitals and residents of our Southside neighborhoods. Meals will be created by our team of chefs and industry friends. We will all use responsibly sourced proteins and local farms for produce whenever possible, and Marz and Kimski’s kitchen to produce these delicious meals.
The Community Kitchen also provides work to chefs, cooks, and front-of-house hospitality workers who have lost their businesses or full time / part time employment due to the pandemic. It’s our belief that repurposing our kitchens to feed those in need is one response to the ongoing crisis.
The Community Kitchen is a project between Public Media Institute, Marz Community Brewing Co., and Community of the Future Inc., the parent company of Kimski and Maria’s Packaged Goods & Community Bar.
