“We have been partnering with Breaktime for several years now and are excited to see how the organization has grown and how it is positively impacting so many young people.

Our staff who are working with our Breaktime Associates are excited to be part of a program that provides young adults with real-world experience while simultaneously building their confidence and skills to succeed in the workplace. Thank you Breaktime for helping transform these young people’s lives while allowing us to teach young people about the plant industry!”
"Rescuing Leftover Cuisine (RLC) is honored to be partnered with Breaktime, an outstanding organization. As a fellow nonprofit serving the underserved, our collaboration with Breaktime allows RLC a unique opportunity to contribute to Breaktime's mission to break the cycle of young adult homelessness, while furthering our mission to rescue surplus food from businesses to redistribute to people suffering from hunger and food insecurity. We aim to mentor and teach Breaktime's young adults valuable and diverse professional, technical and personal skills and support their growth.
The Breaktime team is completely committed to their mission of breaking down barriers to job security, financial security, and housing security for their Associates. We value our relationships with Steph and the Breaktime team, and look forward to years of collaboration to empower young adults who deserve advocacy, equity, security and hope."
"Breaktime’s mission to provide workforce development and job opportunities for at-risk youth is something we can all get behind. As a business owner, Breaktime provides a meaningful way to achieve our DEI objectives and give back to the community in which we serve. As a small business consultant that focuses on minority-owned and under-represented entrepreneurs, it’s a natural fit. We love to see impactful programs like Breaktime getting the recognition they deserve and are honored to be a partner.”
