Deli Up!

Every community deserves access to healthy and nutritious food

A delicious range of grab and go Deli food to be sold in the upcoming grocery store and throughout neighborhoods affected by food apartheid

Partnering with the Humana Foundation and Common Table (Catholic Charities) we set out to create a range of tasty Deli food to help with food justice within our communities. We have set about working with Common Table to create a culinary training program for 10 Trainees to complete a 47 week course in food management. Those trainees will then use their new found skills to produce food for the deli as well as support events being held throughout the year. We were also very interested in creating a deli menu with significant community input. As such we will host 10 tasting events throughout the year. For these events we will be selecting community partners to reach out to their communities and host free food tasting events so we can get the input we need to be successful.
