As many of you know, these are exciting times for Project Feast. We are in the process of moving and developing our new program: the 2016 Culinary Apprenticeship Program. This Apprenticeship Program will be an expansion of the Culinary Kitchen Basics Program and the Leadership Program. Based on feedback from past participants, we are making the program longer, 4-6 months, and incorporating a more hands-on approach to our curriculum. The program will meet 4-5 days per week for 4-5 hours per day, with optional days for guest speakers and workshops. In order to accommodate this program, we will be moving into a new kitchen space. We are looking at various kitchen locations at the moment and hope to sign a lease within the next month.
We are excited to be so close to launching our pilot program and welcoming several refugees and immigrants of South King County as the new Project Feast Apprentices.
If you know of anyone who might be interested in participating in our apprenticeship, please do not hesitate to pass on this information. Our first info session is scheduled for:

We are excited about our eventful summer and hope that you will continue to support Project Feast. We look forward to keeping you updated on all of our progress!
The #FeastForward campaign kicked off to a great start with GiveBIG! With your help, we raised $1,185 before any matching. We would like to thank all those who participated and included Project Feast in their donations!
All of the money raised will be invested in helping unlock the potential of refugees and immigrant cooks. Donations will help refugees and immigrants obtain quality commercial kitchen training, substantial hands-on experience and leadership development.
We are also excited to announce that the Medina Foundation and the Harvest Foundation have recently approved grants to Project Feast. Their investment will enable us to launch the expanded apprenticeship program this summer. Much gratitude to both foundations for believing in our work.
We recently held an alumni picnic along with staff and board. We enjoyed spending the afternoon catching up with people, celebrating milestones and enjoying some fantastic flavors from around the world.
We look forward to holding more events and having all members of the community attend, please look out for updates!
