Email to Bonnie Fedchock, Executive Director of the National Association of Catering Executives (NACE):
I am a volunteer with Inmates to Entrepreneurs, a unique non-profit organization that provides training and encouragement to prison inmates who are nearing the end of their period of incarceration, to start low-cost service businesses after their release. As you can imagine, the traditional employment prospects for these individuals are not very good. See http://www.inmatestoentrepreneurs.org/
I have recently agreed to serve as a mentor to an inmate who wants to start a small catering business upon her release, scheduled for early January 2012.
Among the publications in the NACE aStore I noticed a book titled: Off-Premise Catering Management, by Bill Hansen and Chris Thomas. Would you consider donating one copy for use my this inmate? This would be a big help to an individual who now seeks to straighten out her life.
