In this podcast, Kentucky Housing Corporation's (KHC) former Executive Director, Edwin King, sits down with Rob Perez, creator of DV8 (Deviate) Kitchen—a restaurant with a heart and mission that gives second chance employment to those in substance abuse recovery trying to redirect their lives, so they will “deviate" from addiction. This model of opportunity and accountability breaks barriers of poverty and empowers employees to learn the trade of baking to live self-sufficiently. This Lexington, Kentucky model is receiving national attention because of its life changing food.
More information about DV8 Kitchen - including menu, location, hours, and how to make a contribution to their mission - can be found on their website at DV8Kitchen.com.
