Ellies Catering Supports Peace House
Ellie’s Chefs Catering Café Will Help Bring Peace House
“Out Of The Shadows And Into The Light”
Support our community! This has been a mantra of Ellie’s Chefs Catering Café since it started as a small catering business 15 years ago. With a mission to help people in need eat healthy meals, they have done just that by offering free catering services, donated financially and provided food and supplies to a variety of nonprofits, including Park City Community Foundation, National Ability Center, Recycle Utah, EATS Park City, Adopt-A-Native-Elder, Summit Community Gardens and Peace House, among others.
Ellie Shropshire, owner of Ellie’s says, “We’re so lucky to live in such a great community. We love to help keep it thriving.”
Ellie recently opened up a new café located in the Kimball Art Center as a way to offer her unique “creative, clean cuisine” to the whole Park City area. And to stay true to her mantra, Ellie’s is rolling out a “give back” program called Ellie’s Cares, where she will donate 5% of the new café’s sales to a local nonprofit. For the launch month of October, Ellie’s Cares will support Peace House, a program that Ellie has been involved with consistently over the course of years.
“The program has done so much for women and families during a very difficult time of need. I want to do my part and I also want to invite the rest of our community to support this program to ensure it continues for a very long time.”
Ellie’s Cares will help fund kitchen and dining supplies for Peace House’s new facility that will includes transitional housing and childcare for victims of domestic violence and their children.
Sally Tauber, Director of Development and Marketing at Peace House, says of this relationship, “The new Peace House Community Campus will support families with safety and stability while they rebuild their lives and Ellie’s Cares continues to support families when they are in the most need by providing healthy nutritious food at critical times.”
Ellie’s Cares will start October 1st with the hopes that people will come to support Peace House and try the café’s new fall menu, which includes new seasonal items such as their House-Roasted Turkey Sandwich with Cranberry Chutney and fall Kale and Butternut Squash Salad.
