HOSPITALITY INTERNSHIP & SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
We opened the Meeting House restaurant in 2019 with the intention of creating a space that invites community- a place where people could come together to build relationships that matter and improve the quality of life in the neighborhood we serve.
The pandemic was difficult for our team and for the restaurant, as it was for everyone. But we made it through, and our community was a big reason we survived. We are now finally in the position to continue our mission and are beginning efforts to give back.
We are excited to announce that we will be offering a paid internship to two qualifying seniors at Princeton High School.
Upon completion of the program, these two individuals will each be awarded a $2,500 scholarship for further education (more information in the Q&A below).
