St. Luke’s is feeding 90+ young people from our reVision ministry each day. Meals are prepared in the St. Luke’s Westheimer campus kitchen and transferred to the reVision staff for delivery to the students. This allows reVision to see and check in on the students every day while providing a much-needed hot meal. We hope to begin bringing students into the kitchen with Adam to help continue developing the workforce development program using the St. Luke’s kitchen as our hub. This program will use the kitchen as a vehicle to teach a wide range of employability skills.
