Launched in 2013, Community Table Kitchen marries our twofold mission of basic needs and solution-oriented services. Our commercial kitchen space allows Bridge House to combine our commitment to feed the hungry in our community with our commitment to providing jobs to our Ready to Work trainees as a stepping stone out of homelessness.
- With the more than 70,000 meals we provide each year to the homeless and working poor we promote community, engage people in services, and recently, create jobs for our homeless clients seeking employment through our Ready to Work program.
- We are strategic with our food preparation in our kitchen and we have created a culinary arts program with 12 Ready to Work positions. Our trainees learn the skills they need to transition into a mainstream kitchen job.
- In 2015, we partnered with Audi Boulder to create Audi Cup café providing customer service and barista experience for trainees Click here to watch a short video.
- In 2016 we contracted with Naropa University to operate 3 Naropa café sites creating 4 permanent jobs for Ready to Work graduates and 5 additional trainee positions. Click here to read the daily camera article.
Community Table Kitchen Catering does not disappoint. There is an elegant ease to the dishes that John creates that is both tasty and beautiful. The staff is friendly and very professional. We have used them on numerous occasions and the food has received rave reviews! The added bonus is that you are supporting a local organization that is helping and doing so much good!
