Food For Life: Food For Life (FFL) is a culinary training and food education program that teaches unemployed young DC residents (ages 18-23) lacking educational and vocational options how to have productive and healthy lives. Through learning to prepare gourmet dinners for up to 50 customers, this social enterprise ensures that at-risk DC young adults have the skills, training, and social support needed to be successful as individuals and in their community. Food For Life takes a comprehensive approach to food by using it as a tool for (1) workforce development, (2) life skills training, (3) healthy lifestyles, and (4)community building. By participating in Food For Life, students have an opportunity to work hands-on to cook new and innovative meals, learn culinary skills and techniques, dig into food culture and the food industry, explore faith and justice as it connects to food and healthy living and develop life and work readiness skills that will prepare them for life beyond the kitchen. FFL has one staff member and 20 volunteers who serve in a variety of capacities. In 2013 their first year of programming, 71% of our graduates found employment and an additional 21% are actively searching for work.

FFL currently services on average 5 students per session and prepares approximately 50 carry out meals weekly.In order to legally sell the carry-out meals to customers, FFL must operate out of a commercially licensed kitchen. FFL and Care Company made an agreement with the host site for the pilot program, Capitol Hill United Methodist Church (CHUMC), that FFL/CC would renovate their old kitchen in exchange for leasing the kitchen for free for 5 years. From October 2012 through March 2013, FFL and Care Company renovated the kitchen. The renovation was completed through the efforts of volunteers and professional contractors.Food For Life: Food For Life (FFL) is a culinary training and food education program that teaches unemployed young DC residents (ages 18-23) lacking educational and vocational options how to have productive and healthy lives.

The Porch: The Porch's goal is to provide at-risk urban youth with a positive environment in which they are empowered and equipped with life skills. Staff and volunteers strive to provide a healthy space that allows each individual teen to grow into their full potential and be prepared to enter adulthood. The youth are strongly encouraged to discover and explore their relationship with God and how having a relationship with Him can impact their life. The Porch serves these teenagers by providing weekly youth group meetings, semi-annual retreats, annual events and one-on-one mentoring. In 2013, 35 youth regularly attended programming, while nearly 75 youth, representing 10 DC area schools, have been exposed to The Porch in some capacity. One full-time and one part-time staff currently run the program, with the suppport of 150 volunteers who serve each year in a variety of ways. Throughout the school year the program runs weekly. We have seen great success in the Porch based on the number of teens who return each week and the longevity of their relationlships with Porch staff and volunteers. Many of The Porch youth begin in middle school and will continue on through high school. A number of post-high school graduates have now returned to The Porch, seeking to serve as they had once been served.

Urban Hands: We had 50 DC area youth, representing diverse ethnic, denominational and socio-economic backgrounds, participate in Urban Hands last summer. During the week-long camp, the youth served at 15 different service sites(serving approximately 400 people throughout the week) throughout the DC metro area, they learned about Biblical issues of justice and mercy facing our city and were empowered to identify areas of need and opportunities to serve in the neighborhoods in which they live.
