In 2014, Utah Community Action partnered with Salt Lake County to create the Evergreen Café in the Millcreek Recreation Center, where students serve meals to seniors and clientele of the rec center. This café is used as a practical, temporary employment program for Sauté program graduates. Sauté classes are also offered during the day through the café. This year, UCA expanded this partnership to include the Draper and Midvale Senior Center Cafés as well.
Sauté caters events for the general public, offering practical application for banquet serving and preparation to Sauté students. Catering services also offer a revenue source for Head Start benefiting multiple programs dedicated to helping families become self-reliant.
