Bread & Roses Community Kitchen is offering five $1,000 to $2,000 scholarships for food entrepreneurs who currently use, or would like to use, its commissary kitchen.
Since the kitchen opened in 2015, it has helped more than 20 diverse Charlottesville-area chefs launch culinary businesses.
Applications for the scholarships are due by Monday, Oct. 10. Any chef living and working in the greater Charlottesville area, who could work out of the Bread & Roses Kitchen at Trinity Episcopal Church on Preston Ave. in Charlottesville, is eligible to apply. Here are the scholarship guidelines.
