As part of a unique partnership, patrons dining out in the Greater Louisville area will benefit and help Goodwill fund our Soft Skills academies during Louisville Restaurant Week, February 24 – March 1. This dining out focused week will encourage locals to experience Louisville’s lively culinary scene with a pre fixe three-course menu for $26, $36 or $46 at participating restaurants.
One dollar of every meal purchased during Louisville Restaurant Week will be donated to Goodwill Industries of Kentucky’s Soft Skills academies and the Coalition for the Homeless’ Rx: Housing Fund. Soft Skills academies prepare job seekers for the workforce by teaching the soft skills exhibited by valuable, reliable employees: attitude, conflict resolution, dependability, self-presentation, basic safety, and team building. This program works to help those in need obtain sustainable jobs in the workforce.
