OKC Metro Alliance

Award Date: March 7, 2019
Awarded: $607,110

The OKC Metro Alliance provides an opportunity for individuals to recover from substance abuse through programs leading to sobriety including Firstep, a residential work-therapy program. The Women’s Firstep Community Kitchen project will provide the program with a new culinary facility and dining room. The goals of this new facility are to improve access and consumption of nutritious food by creating a Community Kitchen that will provide a structured resource for women in recovery and substance abuse treatment to prepare healthy meals, learn new cooking skills, share diverse cultural recipes and build relationships. In addition, the Community Kitchen will allow the women to explore new skillsets and business opportunities to support their new, healthy lifestyle following treatment.
