Fresh Start Catering

New Life participants learn kitchen skills, sales, customer service, and more through our catering business, Fresh Start Catering. Every sale provides life-giving care and dignity to hundreds of people in our community. There is no better way to make your team feel appreciated than presenting them with a wide array of entrees, salads, charcuterie boards, and traditional favorites including pulled pork sandwiches, and delicious sides.
