The Melting Pot Foundation

was founded in 2010 by Danish restaurateur and food entrepreneur Claus Meyer, with the aim to improve the quality of life and to drive social change through initiatives that have food, craft of cooking and entrepreneurship as recurrent elements.

The Foundation’s work is focused on the following areas:

to drive social change and to combat poverty through initiatives related to food and hospitality;

to use education in food and cooking and culinary craft as instruments to inspire people to pursue careers in hospitality and the culinary arts; and

to break picky eating habits of children and, from an early age, strengthen their ability to influence sustainable and healthy food choices.

Brownsville Community Culinary Center

is committed to offering healthy, accessible cuisine to neighborhood residents through our eatery.

Our culinary training program educates and inspires participants to excel in the food-service industry. We offer services that support our program participants as they cultivate and work toward their dreams.

The BCCC will serve as a forum through which the Brownsville neighborhood can address and organize around issues of food injustice. We strive to collaborate with resident-led initiatives.
