Session Title:  "Connection + Community"

Session Description: In a ‘real food culture,’ everyone knows where food comes from and how it is made. The Kitchen is a unique combination of non-profit (The Kitchen Community) and for-profit enterprises (The Kitchen restaurants). The Kitchen Community non-profit paves the way for change and creates immediate and long-lasting impact. The Kitchen family of restaurants provide sustainability, demonstrate long-term commitment and, in turn, donate a portion of the proceeds to the non-profit.

This session will look at the humble beginnings of The Kitchen when it opened as Boulder's Community Bistro eleven years ago in 2004 and what it strives for today in multiple cities with multiple concepts that are working in tandem to systematically enhance every part of the food culture in cities by creating community through food.
