Hummus Program plants a seed with Cultivate Small Business!

L’Arche Boston North’s Homemade Hummus Team is the only nonprofit to win a place in Santander Bank’s 2021 Cultivate Small Business Program!

Cultivate Small Business is a fully virtual, 16-week program that helps early-stage entrepreneurs from Massachusetts and New Jersey in the food industry build and sustain businesses.

L’Arche Boston North Executive Director Jennifer Matthews says, “We are delighted to have been selected to participate in this year’s program. Homemade Hummus is so much more than chickpeas and tahini—it is a vehicle for meaningful inclusion and belonging for people of ALL abilities. We are grateful to our friends at Santander, Commonwealth Kitchen, The Cummings Foundation, and Babson College for being champions of inclusion and for providing us with the tools and access to opportunities necessary to take our vision to the next level!”
