One of the core programs at City of Refuge is the 180° Kitchen, which provides over 19,000 meals a month to needy individuals, including children in City of Refuge programs, residents in its transitional housing and shelter facilities, neighbors in the local community, and the homeless. In addition to providing so many meals, the 180° Kitchen also offers a culinary arts program for 16 to 25 year old students from at-risk environments. Students receive entry level culinary arts training and certification in a hands-on environment, while preparing meals for the programs at City of Refuge. The program teaches life skills, professional skills, and compassion for others – all geared to help graduates make a “180 degree change” in the direction of their lives.
