After serving a short time in prison, Antonio was working on his GED when he enrolled in the Foodservice Training program. He graduated with flying colors, and now works as a line cook at Inspiration Kitchens – Garfield Park.
“I come in here, and the outside world is gone. I’ve never had anything like that, and Inspiration Kitchens changed my life. And I love you all for that.”
One Inspired Evening will be another amazing evening with inspiring art, fantastic food and great people! We will have a new venue, new juried categories for art, and a new date!
Highlights of the event will include a juried art auction by artist and managing director of Firecat Projects Stan Klein, and artist, founder/director of the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative Deborah Maris Lader, and Chicago business owner Steven E. Gross. It will feature more pieces from local and national artists; as well as cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvres buffet catered by Inspiration Kitchens, our food service training program and social enterprise, with restaurants in Garfield Park and Uptown. Special thanks to Italian Village Restaurants for their generous donation of cocktails and wine.
