Table to Community Williamsport Community Kitchen Fundraising Brunch

Table to Community is a pop-up brunch that benefits the Williamsport Community Kitchen! This fundraiser is catered by Colleen Masteller, the local chef behind the In Whites dinners. All of the profit goes to purchasing new equipment for the WCK! The Williamsport Community Kitchen is a non-profit kitchen incubator space that provides local food industry entrepreneurs with access to a low-cost commercial kitchen. One of the biggest barriers to starting any food business is the price of building or leasing commercial kitchen facilities. The WCK removes this obstacle, reducing startup and operating costs for our members. Our mission is to support food and beverage entrepreneurs as they grow their businesses. We believe that good food supports our local economy and enriches our entire community!

  • When: 10 to noon 
  • Where: Clearstory at the Pajama Factory, 1307 Park Ave., Williamsport
