Products and Services:
Porchlight Products combines social and environmental responsibility by targeting the use of local, sustainably grown produce and a certified kitchen for supportive training of formerly homeless, disabled adults in the processing of value-added products for restaurants, stores and special promotions.

Jeff Steckel - Kitchen Programs Manager 608.257.2534 ext. 35 jsteckel@porchlightinc.org
Philosophy:
We support local businesses and farmers because this enhances our local community. Not only are the employees in our kitchen part of their little community but working with local farmers exposes them to the broader community and empowers them in their daily struggle towards permanent housing and recovery from homelessness.
History:
Porchlight Products was created in 2008 as a way to connect local produce, the clients that Porchlight already serves with local businesses and consumers. This program was able to start because we had an underutilized commercial grade kitchen available.
