The International Rescue Committee (IRC) is writing St. Luke's into a federal community food security grant for a three year, $400K refugee job training project that would involve growing a food product in our vacant lot and processing/packaging it for sale in an upgraded St. Luke's kitchen. The grant requires a 100% match, and the IRC will figure out most of it, but we've signed up St. Luke's to get $50K in pledges for the kitchen upgrade portion of the project, which would bring the kitchen up to commercial (you-can-sell-to-the-public) standards. For details on the project, click here. Pledges would need to be paid by next summer 2017. Thank you for considering a pledge to this exciting project to serve San Diego's recent refugees!
