Chikumbuso Kitchen

In partnership with Blue Moon Cafe

Bob Keating visited Chikumbuso one day and approached Linda with a plan.  To have a joint venture – training and employing youth in our program for his then dream American style cafe and maybe producing some of the items for sale at Chikumbuso.

That dream of Bob’s became a reality in August of 2010 and Blue Moon Cafe now employs 9 youth from Chikumbuso.  They’ve learned about coffee from the bean stage to perfect cappuccinos. They’ve also learned new skills about restaurant work and business acumen.  In addition, they also work together on days off at the New Kitchen on Chikumbuso premises, making delicious chocolate cake, honey wheat bread and various other items which they sell to Blue Moon, other local restaurants and markets.
