Who We Are

Out Of A Jam began in 2016 with a 4-pound bag of sugar and a whole bunch of berries. Since then we have grown to include working with at risk youth, catering, after school cooking classes, and much more!  With every new venture, we continue to Feed, Nourish, and Transform the lives we touch in Fort Wayne and beyond!!
