KJCG Community Partnerships

We invest time, energy, and talent in supporting our Capital Region community. When an organization makes a commitment to its community by investing in local businesses, educational institutions, nonprofit programs, and other valuable resources, that investment paves the way for the organization’s own growth and success.

We at KJCG want to be involved in fostering positive change locally and nationally by sharing our knowledge, expertise, and resources. We believe that being a good corporate citizen is, in many ways, key to being a successful business.

One World Everybody Eats Foundation

One World Everybody Eats Foundation, originally based in Salt Lake City, Utah, is a nonprofit community kitchen with a BIG mission to end world hunger. The community kitchen concept is similar to that of a soup kitchen, but it incorporates a pay-as-you-can model. If an individuals cannot afford to pay for the meals they receive from the kitchen, they are expected to pay what they can, knowing that others may be able to pay more.

"It somehow stays in balance," said Founder Denise Cerreta. "I think ultimately people are good.  They want to contribute."
