Dining with Dignity
Giving hope: one meal at a time.
Joining us by helping create Morningside’s only community kitchen were residents can come in and “Dine with Dignity.”
Did you know that Morningside Community is currently known as a food desert where residents don’t have proper access to healthy, fresh food or a current meal site that is less than a 18 minute walk?!?! You can give to help change that today and be part of the solution to fill such a great need right here in our local community.
This kitchen will have restaurant-style dining, where residents can come together in an inviting, comfortable atmosphere and “Dine with Dignity.” Beyond being a meal site, the “Dining with Dignity” model will provide workforce training and experience tailored to the regional hospitality industry, providing neighborhood residents with hands-on experience and real- life skills needed to enter the workforce. The kitchen will also provide a space for residents to learn cooking and nutrition skills that encourage long-term health and wellness. It will also act as a multiple function community space, providing space for educational programming, cooking workshops, demonstrations, and food events. This will strengthen and build food security leading to a healthier and economically stronger neighborhood and community.
