Delphi Wealth Management Group of West Chester presented the Chester County Food Bank with a $25,000 donation on Friday, March 1, 2019, to help sustain the Food Bank’s recently launched FRESHstart KitchenTM culinary workforce development program.
Delphi partners Kevin McDermott and John Kane presented the donation to Ranney Moran, Director of Culinary Programs along with students currently enrolled in the program. After presenting the donation, the Delphi Team volunteered at the Food Bank helping to sort and organize donated food.
FRESHstart Kitchen hosted its inaugural class in September 2018 at the Chester County Food Bank’s Exton headquarters. FRESH, an acronym for Focusing Resources on Employment, Self-Sufficiency and Health, was specifically designed to assist individuals with limited work experience, barriers to employment and significant personal challenges – including substance abuse and criminal records. The workforce development program will provide life skills to help address distinctive and significant challenges entering or re-entering the workforce.
“Support like this from Delphi Wealthy Management Group signifies a deep understanding of the challenges our neighbors face when seeking sustainable employment in Chester County,” said Food Bank Executive Director Larry Welsch. “We are grateful for this generous donation,” continued Ranney Moran, “and thanks to Delphi we anticipate life changing outcomes for our FRESHstart Kitchen students.
