LAS VEGAS – Opportunity Village's Kitchen Creations Catering team, led by newly appointed Executive Chef Cindy Chartrand, is proud to announce expanded kitchen services, including hot and cold catering platters, made fresh out of the organization’s Ralph and Betty Engelstad Campus.
In addition to the charity's long-standing Cookie Crafters and Lunch Bunch divisions, Opportunity Village’s KC Catering team has added over 25 entree and hors d'oeuvres to pair with its trusted fruit, cheese, vegetable, sandwich and wrap platters.
"Opportunity Village has really taken the next step in its culinary program," Chartrand said. "Our team has taken inspiration from across the globe and built a diverse menu inside Opportunity Village’s state-of-the-art kitchen facility. It’s a menu I can confidently say is delicious and one that we’re all proud of. Not only does KC Catering allow us to feed the community, but it also provides OV another way to serve its wonderful clients."
KC Catering’s hot entrees include traditional favorites such as Chicken Picatta and Spaghetti Bolognese and also regional favorites like Seafood Gumbo and Veal Marsala. Hors d’oeuvres include bruschetta, crab cakes and chicken and vegetable skewers.
KC Catering is the perfect option for gatherings, business meetings and large parties.

About Opportunity Village
Mission: Opportunity Village is a not-for-profit organization that serves people within our community with significant intellectual disabilities, to improve their lives and the lives of their families.
Seven families who were determined to give their children with disabilities the best lives possible founded Opportunity Village in 1954. Now, more than six decades later, Opportunity Village is one of the most recognized and respected organizations of its type in the United States.
Nevada’s largest employer of people with disabilities, Opportunity Village serves nearly 2,000 individuals annually, providing vocational training, employment, habilitation and social recreation programs and services that make their lives more purposeful and interesting.
Opportunity Village citizens – individuals who were previously considered unemployable – work at Opportunity Village’s Employment Resource Centers and in jobs throughout the community, collectively earning wages amounting to more than $3.7 million in 2016. They are hardworking and diligent, proudly paying taxes and happily leading more fulfilling lives.
Primarily a self-funded organization, Opportunity Village generates the majority of its operational funding through its employment contracts and fundraising efforts such as the Magical Forest and Great Santa Run, saving Nevada taxpayers more than $37 million annually.
