About the Plant to Plate Program

Our Plant to Plate apprenticeship program is designed to empower and professionally train under-resourced high school kids in food related careers from the Richmond area near our commercial kitchen. Plant to Plate promotes the enthusiastic enjoyment of cooking, eating, and sharing meals with others.

The program is led by Oren’s Kitchen Chef & Owner, Arnon Oren and Kelli Barram, a Master Gardener and educator. The students learn  about the entire food cycle, from seed planting to sustainable organic farming, and from harvest to professional food preparation, presentation, and food service.

Pictured here are our 2017 Plant to Plate graduates. We are looking forward to 2018. Our Plant to Plate apprentices are available to assist on your next event.
