The Transition Kitchen

Chef Stew demoing the Transition Kitchen at My Brothers Keeper, one of the empowering food programs we want to join us in South West Baltimore. With Chef Stew in the same neighborhood we would easily be able to refer people into his classes giving people the skills they need to get employment in the restaurant industry.

On Feb 8th, celebrity chef Robert Stewart (Chef Stew) shared his Transition Kitchen with 15 boys ages 10 - 18 from our YouthEmpower, Making of a Man & the G-Squad.  They learned, laughed, made great food for 2 hours and left asking when they could come back again. Once Transition Kitchen is up and running we will be able to send our working age youth and adults into this program to help empower the community.
