Working with LOFT
We offer positions to youth, aged 16-29, who want to work in the food & hospitality industry! We train youth in large scale catering, back of house and line cook prep, working with volunteers, serving meals to community members and working in our youth-led café, learning front of house customer service and barista skills.
One of our most valuable partnerships in progressing our youth employment initiatives has been with St. Stephen’s Community House.
Since 1990, St. Stephen’s has served the community with dynamic programs and services for youth, helping them make a healthy transition from teenagers to young adults. Those interested in learning more about our youth employment program can contact us for more information.
We are interested in the many forms social enterprise takes world-wide, and the capacity for social enterprise to change the way we do business in every sector for the better.
Where do you buy your groceries, clothes and gifts? Do you know what it means to buy social?
Buy Social is a flagship campaign by Social Enterprise UK, that aims to build markets for social enterprises among the general public as well as the private and public sectors. It challenges all of us to think about where we buy our goods and services from, and the social impact of our purchasing decisions. LOFT Kitchen has been a proud participant of this campaign and wants to encourage our greater community to join the conversation.
After completing the LOFT Kitchen training and employment program, our graduates have gone on to do amazing things, for themselves and for the community!
Our graduates have gone on to George Brown College – such as recent graduate Jahnaya Reid, who became the 2016 recipient of the Investing in Our Diversity full Scholarship to George Brown ECE – Ryerson University, The Institute of Holistic Nutrition, and OCAD University. Our talented youth chefs have also found employment with The McEwan Group, the Fairmont Hotel, Oliver & Bonacini Restaurants, and numerous cafes and coffee shops in the GTA.
