| {color:#222222}About Us{color} | {color:#454545}Kitchen Connection is an online network where chefs and lay food lovers can teach online and interactive cooking classes. The hosts of the classes (connections) can be paid, or choose to donate some or all of the funds from the class to our partner charity, Action Against Hunger and most recently, Whole Food's Whole Planet Foundation.{color}\\ {color:#454545}We focus on one country every month, and we normally host a monthly event at Whole Foods, educational institutions and the United Nations. Here are some examples of our events: {color}{color:#e4af09}Greek Month{color}{color:#454545}, {color}{color:#e4af09}Peru Month {color}{color:#454545}--- both with the Greek and Peruvian trade commissioners/consuls in attendance. In June, we are featuring France - and we are hosting our cooking class at the French Embassy, with the ingredients sponsored by Whole Foods Market. In 2018, we will continue to feature one country every month, focusing on countries affected by the refugee crisis, in support of the United Nations Together Campaign. {color}\\ |

| {color:#222222}Description{color} | Given our social mission, that aims to be inclusive - and the fact that individuals, especially in developing countries have greater access to phones than they do laptops, we are looking to expand our reach via a mobile app for IOS/ Android. \\
We have created basic wireframes for the app, which can be found here, but are very open to new ideas and suggestions.  \\ |

On February 21, 2017, in partnership with the University of Pennsylvania's Hack4Impact (a student organization that connects student software developers with nonprofits), we migrated the catalog from a static site to a dynamic web application and scaled our product to Philadelphia, PA. \\
Our long-term vision is to scale our catalog to all major U.S. cities and ultimately, streamline the safe integration of LGBTQ asylum seekers in the U.S. From a technical standpoint, we strive to provide an open platform that allows LGBTQ asylum seekers to self-determine their own resource needs both ethically and scalably. |

| {color:#222222}Project Name{color} | {color:#222222}AsylumConnect --- “Backend Migration”{color} |
| {color:#222222}Description{color} | AsylumConnect is now partnering with a San Francisco-based nonprofit building technical solutions to help low-income families access community resources. This nonprofit partner will be providing AsylumConnect with full access to its Resource Server API, which houses all public resource information content, as well as its Application Server API, which provides access to all features requiring a user account (resource bookmarks, referrals, editing, etc). Both of our organizations are confident that this partnership will help AsylumConnect to scale its services to all major U.S. cities, further enabling LGBTQ asylum seekers to access life-saving resources. \\
** Migrating our existing resources onto our partner’s databases, which are actively maintained by our partner organization.
* Adding the ability for users to suggest new resources located anywhere in the U.S., which will revolutionize our ability to help LGBTQ asylum seekers at scale. |
