As Hospitality “Lifers”, we have always had a passion for 
giving back to our community.

Starting from our roots of serving the less fortunate in DC, to our ongoing volunteer initiatives, ‘Small Batch Community’ represents our commitment to making a difference. Through ‘Nourishing Our Neighbors,’ we strive to give back in diverse and impactful ways, fostering a stronger community.

What We Do

Small Batch Community, an offspring of our Hospitality Consulting firm Small Batch Concepts, was created with the goal of supporting worthwhile community endeavors that will positively enhance the lives of our neighbors!

The SB Community team is committed to making positive social and economic impacts on the communities we serve.  We believe it is our responsibility to “nourish our neighbors”, both literally and figuratively. Our efforts will focus on serving those in crisis and those who are somehow falling through the cracks in our system.

By utilizing our decades of professional experience in the hospitality world, we vow to share our resources to offer professional mentoring, culinary training initiatives and hands on support to other social enterprise ventures that share our vision to empower and strengthen our communities.

Serving Our Community

As emerging entrepreneurs, our drive to connect and foster community was the catalyst for our ventures in the hospitality industry. With Small Batch Community, our goal is to extend our commitment to serving others by engaging and supporting our neighbors.

We collaborate with various initiatives focusing on critical community issues such as food insecurity, housing, healthcare, and education. Through partnerships with exemplary non-profits, our team provides hands-on and financial support, leveraging our hospitality expertise and connections.

We’re proud to have dedicated our time, knowledge, and resources to organizations including DC Central Kitchen, Metro Caring of Denver, Court Appointed Special Advocates of Maryland, Didlake, Special Olympics, and Habitat for Humanity, to name just a few.
