Cultivating the local abundance of world cultures and culinary heritages
Our mission is to provide refugees and immigrants with an empowering and enriching path to meaningful income. Local Abundance Kitchen educates and assists refugees and immigrants in the local community in a variety of ways. We enable them to offer ethnic cooking classes to share their culture and traditions; we provide education, assistance, or employment to them as an entrepreneurial launch pad to produce local products; and offer education and guidance through community nutrition classes and agricultural initiatives.
- Cultivate the abundance of world cultures and culinary heritages present in the local area, which have been providentially brought to Cleveland by refugees and immigrants.
- Share these cultures with the local community as a way of enriching and empowering the immigrant population.
- Foster growth in the community by using local and seasonal ingredients in all classes, sourced through local farmers, producers and markets.
- Disciple members of the refugee and immigrant community in their small business endeavors and become an entrepreneurial incubator.
