Our Recipient of the Week is the New Beginnings Center in Novato. Part of the Homeward Bound of Marin family, NBC is an 80-bed shelter for single homeless adults—the largest homeless shelter in the county. It includes the Fresh Starts Culinary Academy, which welcomes residents and low-income students from the community into a job-training program in their state-of-the-art kitchen. Students intern at the Jackson Cafe in downtown San Rafael, a partnership with Whistlestop, as well as at FSCA’s chef events and in other venues. ExtraFood.org has been working with NBC since our very first week of operation 3 years ago, and we’re proud to support their work to help people lift themselves out of homelessness.
