Faithventure Freshbox Partners with Faith Mission Shelter to Employ the Formerly Homeless

For individuals rebuilding lives from homelessness, a job is a key part of achieving self-sufficiency.

Lutheran Social Services of Central Ohio recognizes that reality with its innovative faithventure, Freshbox Catering, which provides employment and training for the Faith Mission Ohio shelter.

Over the last few years, the organization has become the social enterprise standard for a cutting-edge catering brand with a high-quality training program.

Fresh Box serves Columbus area businesses with delicious and healthy sandwiches and salads for lunch-time events. But it's more than just a catering business. As Fresh Box's web site explains:
We provide a unique work environment that embeds employment readiness, advanced job skills, financial literacy, and professionalism right into our operations.

Our tiered employment model allows Freshbox team members to demonstrate their motivation and initiative while being supported and challenged along the way. We hold our employees to extraordinary standards because we believe they’re extraordinary people.

Countless community members, industry experts, and dedicated volunteers helped create the framework for this social-purpose business, committing to providing both great food and a great deal of impact in the community.
