竞技宝DOTA2的旗舰项目, 竞技宝DOTA2 is a year-long food business incubator and training program that combines commercial food training and consistent access to commercial opportunities for supplemental earned income (catering, 事件, 教学工作, 厨师演示, 弹出窗口, 等.).
OTK是专门为满足社区成员的需求而设计的, supporting the specific conditions of poor and working class immigrant, 难民和PoC厨师. In order to help meet chefs’ needs and enable them to fully immerse and benefit from the year-long program, we integrate case management and referrals to direct services through partnerships with a coalition of organizations specializing in: legal status, 食品安全, 住房, 心理健康, 语言/翻译支持, 等. 并为参与提供津贴, 儿童保育和旅行支持, 以及在会议和研讨会中进行口译.
与唐人街改善计划合作, EBALDC, APEN, 以及其他当地商人和组织, 竞技宝DOTA2计划推出一个开放夜市(日期TBA).
在过去, 竞技宝DOTA2 has hosted small pilot underground night markets in downtown Oakland that were incredibly well-received and sold out with 150 seatings each night and over 1000 attendees over the course of the series.
有机会在唐人街开一个夜市, 竞技宝DOTA2 looks to experiment with what a full and authentic night market could look like with the hopes of ultimately creating Oakland’s first hawker center (or food hall) that could act as a training ground and permanent kitchen for up-and-coming chefs from poor and working class communities to develop and hone their food businesses.
