More big news from Busboys and Poets:
“The Far Southeast Family Strengthening Collaborative (FSFSC) and Busboys and Poets will formerly announce a partnership that will result in a restaurant and hospitality and culinary leadership training institute in Ward 8 on Martin Luther King Ave., SE.
At the press conference, FSFSC will announce that a full service Busboys and Poets restaurant will occupy approximately 7,000 square feet in the building owned and operated by the Ward 8 based nonprofit. It will also highlight its plans to operate a full-scale hospitality and culinary arts leadership training institute and new office space for FSFSC.
The Far Southeast Family Strengthening Collaborative planned this venture with Ward 8 residents in mind. “Employment opportunities in these fields are flourishing – in the nation’s capital, and FSFSC wants to ensure Ward 8 residents are prepared and well equipped to compete for jobs in the field of culinary arts and hospitality,” states Perry Moon, Executive Director of FSFSC. “In addition, Busboys and Poets is bringing a needed amenity to the neighborhood.”
For eighteen years, FSFSC has partnered with residents, agencies, and institutions in the Southeast community to ensure a healthy and positive environment for families. The Hospitality and Culinary Leadership Institute will be one more step in providing resources and tools for residents of Ward 8.”
