He previously operated a program for Our Community Place, a nonprofit in Virginia. While there, he helped cook three meals a day from scratch for the homeless in the community. He also helped turn donated food from stores, restaurants, purveyors, farmer’s markets and the community into delicious, healthy food for 60+ community members three times a day and organized the numerous volunteers and community members in the kitchen to maximize efficiency and help to ensure a rewarding experience.
