La Cocina VA
We are so excited to connect with La Cocina VA, a non-profit in Arlington VA. Their mission is to create opportunities for social and economic change through feeding, educating, and empowering the minds of the community.
Using the power of food, La Cocina VA provides opportunities for social and economic growth. They offer the only bilingual culinary job training program in the Washington DC Metro Area. Through a combination of financial intelligence, nutrition, vocational English, and job readiness training, their 16-week program encompasses all their clients’ needs.
We love La Cocina VA’s hands-on approach to make economic change in our community and are thrilled to welcome them to the SFC family! Last month we hosted our first partnership event, a Marketing Workshop on how to create strong brand positioning in your market and strategies to create the right offer and approach for each target segment for La Cocina VA’s Small Business Incubator Program.
One of our outreach goals for 2021 has been to partner with an intersectional array of referral agencies.
Thanks to our new connection with La Cocina VA we have already been able to further our relationships with the Latinx community.
To accommodate for our growing audience, we have even translated our Professional Development Workbook into Spanish:
