Helping veterans find a passion or career in cooking by supplying them with startup supplies and knowledge.

Every day after leaving the military, veterans struggle with mental health, tbi, ptsd, depression, substance abuse, financial issues, and more.

"I feel I have overcome many challenges by staying focused in the kitchen. I found a rewarding career with my love of cooking. It has helped me overcome many obstacles that veterans face today. I want to share my story and offer help to veterans to find a passion for cooking like I have. I have been given so much help from veteran organizations that I feel its now my time to share and give back to veterans."

- Bryant Kryck Executive Chef, US Army Veteran, and Founder.
