In 2015, Food Network Alum Celebrity Chef Robert Stewart saw a need for job training programs in the City of Baltimore and with the rising poverty rates throughout the previous years, he formed the non-profit organization to provide sensible solutions to help the community where he was born and raised. The organization is headquartered in Baltimore, Md and is planning on expanding to other major cities throughout the United States in the near future. With the help of volunteers and donations from across the U.S., the organization has opened its doors.

• Transform a community space into a commercial kitchen where we will be able to teach children, young adults, and ex-offenders about culinary arts.
• Equip students with the culinary skills needed to become employees within Transition Kitchen and obtain employment via job placement through staffing partnerships.
The kitchen will be serve multi purposes such as:
• Providing a catering facility for catering chefs who desire access to a kitchen.
• A home base for Transition Kitchen drop and go catering services.
• A hands-on interactive classroom
• An opportunity to rebuild relationships with law enforcement by implementing a sweet treat package. The sweet treat package will give students the opportunity to deliver the packages of sweet treats to local police departments who participate in the program. This provides a way for law enforcement and children to engage with one another through positive encounters.
