CDN's DiGruccio to Advise Foodservice Non-Profit
November 20, 2013,
PORTLAND, Ore.-Shawn DiGruccio, vice president of CDN, has joined the advisory council of Catalyst Kitchens, a collaborative network of non-profit organizations that assists the homeless and individuals in need with training and finding employment in the foodservice industry.
Catalyst Kitchens is a national initiative of FareStart, a Seattle-based nonprofit social entrepreneurial organization with a mission to end homelessness. Over the next five years, Catalyst Kitchens has aggressive plans to expand by leveraging the experiences of model programs, allowing it to enroll 6,000 chefs-in-training annually and to serve 10 million meals to the needy.
"Catalyst Kitchens has a strong track record of success. CDN is proud to be a donor, and I wanted to get more involved by joining the advisory council. It's great to give someone a meal, but it's even better to give someone the training they need to earn a living over a lifetime in the growing foodservice sector," DiGruccio said.
