Pinkey Reddick, a black Native Washingtonian who lives in Ward 7, grew up cooking with her grandmother. While a manager at Olive Garden, she began to cook breakfast for her church and, after encouragement from parish members, she decided to start Pinke’s Eats catering company.
After establishing her business at TasteLab commercial kitchen, receiving a Kiva microloan, and graduating from Wacif’s Capital Access Accelerator, Pinke’s Eats needed customers. CNHED was proud to feature Pinkey at a planning meeting with anchor procurement directors, and after a successful (and delicious) event, several offices across GW and GU are now submitting frequent catering orders, helping her to build wealth and to eventually create additional jobs for her neighborhood.
