For over nine years San Diego's catering and meal prep company The Urban Taste has provided 100% of the foodservice (non-profit) for the Connections Housing Center

As they recently passed the 1.2 million meals served from that kitchen they were recently visited by California Governor Gavin Newsom and California Senate President pro Tempore Toni G. Atkins.

Together with The Urban Taste's Chef Brian Jackson and co-founder, Brian Jinings, both Newsom, and Atkins discussed San Diego’s homeless problem and how non-profits and small business collaborations can help solve the issue.

 In a social media post, Jinings said the project is a case-study and he would like to expand the structure beyond San Diego. 

If you want to help them in their endeavor you can volunteer through Urban Angels in San Diego or contact them for all of your catering and healthy meal prep needs.
