Project Bread's Walk for Hunger
Since 2010, we've raised more than $22,500 for Project Bread to help feed the hungry in our community. We participate in an array of fundraising and awareness events – from "Kettle Café" days – a pop-up coffee stand for our staff to Fenway Opening Day luncheons, 50/50 raffles, and the annual 20 mile walk.Visit Project Site
The Food Project
Twice a year, a group of Kettle Cuisine volunteers spends a morning getting down and dirty on an urban farm in Lynn, MA. In the spring, we till the land, move fertilizer, plant vegetables and work with the teen leaders to make the land ready for growing season. In the fall, we help harvest the fruits of our labor and prepare the produce to be sold through Community Supported Agriculture (CSAs) and local farmers markets or donated to local hunger relief organizations. In addition to helping create naturally delicious food for our community, we're supporting an organization that helps teens learn the value of leadership and social responsibility.Visit Project Site
The Greater Boston Food Bank
Our longest standing partner, The Greater Boston Food Bank works tirelessly to end hunger and supports many of the food pantries in our area. Each year, we sort food items for delivery and donate an average of about 80,000 cups of soup as part of an effort to help feed our neighbors in Eastern Massachusetts.Visit Project Site
Once a month, we prepare a complete family-style meal for local elderly folks who are at-risk for homelessness and institutionalization and may not have access to healthy foods. Our cooking team prepares foods that are low in sodium, fat and sugar but full of flavor. It's a pleasure to spend time with these smiling, grateful members of our community.Visit Project Site
Did You Know?
Onions So Good You'll Cry
As part of a traditional mirepoix, onions are an important ingredient in many of our soups, so we take time to braise them to their ultimate flavor level before adding them to the kettle.
