**Social enterprise too**
Other organizations, such as Orangeville’s Branching Out Support Services (BOSS), which provides day programs and other services to people with neurodiversities, such as autism and Down Syndrome, are taking their first steps down the community kitchen path.
BOSS founder Kimberly Van Ryn says the group’s new social-enterprise-focused Commonfare Kitchen builds on their mandate to offer meaningful programming for their clients and their families. “I love seeing neurodiverse people, who have maybe not had as many opportunities as neurotypical people, be able to find a purpose, learn skills and move out and about in their community with confidence because they’ve learned those skills in a safe space,” says Van Ryn.
