O-Town Kitchen is a small, but growing social enterprise in Ogden that makes artisan preserves. O-Town Kitchen started in 2015 with the goal of using food that would be wasted to create jobs for families that are in crisis.
using distressed, surplus and b-grade produce to make our products we offer transitional employment opportunities to parents who are recovering any number of crisis including but not limited to domestic violence, homelessness, substance abuse and serious illness.
