Donate to support Hospitality House culinary program
From Hospitality House
It’s hard to believe that 112 gallons of milk are served each month to the guests at Hospitality House. That’s the volume needed to serve the 54 men, women and children from Nevada County who are provided with a nutritious dinner, a continental breakfast and a sack lunch every day. In addition to providing food and shelter, our commercial kitchen allows us to offer a culinary job-training program to guests like Trish, who never learned to cook at home where her parents began offering her drugs when she was only 12 years old.
Stories like these are heartbreaking but thankfully for guests like Trish, participating in the Culinary Program has allowed them to turn the page and begin a new chapter. In fact thirty-three guests have already graduated from the program with the skills, confidence and empowerment to successfully secure housing and/or jobs in the food service industry. Local restaurants, such as Three Forks, Safeway, SPD, and Maria’s, are benefiting from the braising, grilling and baking skills among others that are taught in the program.
Monthly Food Consumption
112 gallons of milk, 112 loaves of bread, 1,620 pieces of fruit, 1,620 juice boxes, 30 large jars of peanut butter, 30 large jars of jelly, 1,620 protein bars

Our Rapid Rehousing Program has helped 382 guests get back into homes of their own—like Bobby, who was reunited with his 5-year-old son Connor this summer when they moved into a shared home in Nevada City. Hospitality House depends on donations and volunteer support to provide shelter, mental health services and case management to those from Nevada County.
