Aviva Paley is a social entrepreneur with professional experience in marrying a social mission with proven business driven strategies. In 2014, she joined with her business partner, Chuck Samuelson (founder), to launch Kitchens for Good (KFG), under the belief that kitchens can be social and economic engines for good in communities. KFG works to develop community kitchens that provide culinary job training for the chronically unemployed, while simultaneously transforming surplus and cosmetically imperfect produce into thousands of nutritious meals for the hungry. In just one year, they have grown the organization from two to 37 employees, operating a $1.5 million social enterprise catering company. Paley oversees all job training, hunger relief and food rescue programs, as well as manages the marketing and communications for Kitchens for Good.
