Event description
Taste4Toolbox is the annual event of the 306 Foundation and Toolbox4Life. This year Fr. Greg Boyle will be speaking live April 20, 2021.

About this Event

The 306 Foundation is focused on creatively engaging communities to address the systemic underlying thoughts, attitudes and challenges in and around at-risk communities.

Toolbox4Life is designed to train students in the basic skills needed to succeed in a commercial kitchen or on a construction site. It is a holistic approach through which we build into the students’ life and job skills.

Our featured guest at this years sixth annual Taste4Toolbox event it Fr. Greg Boyle.

Father Greg witnessed the devastating impact of gang violence on his community during the so-called “decade of death” that began in the late 1980s and peaked at 1,000 gang-related killings in 1992. In the face of law enforcement tactics and criminal justice policies of suppression and mass incarceration as the means to end gang violence, he and parish and community members adopted what was a radical approach at the time: treat gang members as human beings.

In 1988 they started what would eventually become Homeboy Industries, which employs and trains former gang members in a range of social enterprises, as well as provides critical services to thousands of men and women who walk through its doors every year seeking a better life.

Father Boyle is the author of the 2010 New York Times-bestseller Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion, and Barking to the Choir: The Power of Radical Kinship, was published in 2017.

He has received the California Peace Prize and been inducted into the California Hall of Fame. In 2014, President Obama named Father Boyle a Champion of Change. He received the University of Notre Dame’s 2017 Laetare Medal, the oldest honor given to American Catholics. Currently, he serves as a committee member of California Governor Gavin Newsom’s Economic and Job Recovery Task Force as a response to COVID-19. He is also the recipient of the 2016 James Beard Foundation Humaniterian of the Year Award, and Homeboy Industries recieved the Conrad Hilton Humanitarin Prize in 2020.
