Cradle to Career: Kenya has provided food, clean water, housing and education to over 900 Kenyan orphans since it began in 2005. C2C takes in pre-school orphans and vulnerable children and provides them with the tools they need to succeed in life. C2C has recently expanded into supporting some of their students all the way through college and onto careers.

Students pay it forward
A unique part of C2C's program is that they ask all their students to donate back to the program in some way. The youngest children must complete chores while the college students participate in some type of community service every month. After graduation, these college students donate 10% of their salaries back into the C2C program so new students can be fed, housed and educated.
Kenyan inspired recipes
As part of of our support for C2C, we are featuring recipes inspired by Kenya, and will be providing appetizers at C2C's upcoming May 2013 speaker series.
- African curried vegetable and coconut soup
- Kenyan massaged kale with butternut squash and apples
- Spinach salad with dates, almonds and sumac pita croutons
