On March 11th, the team at Restorative Partners made the difficult decision to change this year's grilled cheese festival from the competitor grill off at Laguna Lake to a COVID-19 friendly grilled cheese community event held at your individual homes. While we are heartbroken, we know that your love for the cause and grilled cheese will shine through this difficult time and we will enjoy a year "remote" and then reconvene back to our traditional festival in May of 2021. Please check out this year's format and the fun we shall have! Every donation counts and we encourage you to spread the word far and wide! Please note: everybody can donate- it's a choice to compete and we encourage you to do so!
Vote with your impact. This year we are making voting affordable for everybody. Instead of a ticket we are asking you to give to our impact wall. Your donation will give you an entry into this year's grilled cheese voting! Our impacts range from $1-$500. We ask that you choose one impact, the most you personally can afford to give. With the impact donation of 500 people we will raise $125,250. We need your help to continue the impact of Restorative Partners in our community.
** Each person is only given one vote no matter how many impacts chosen, so choose the largest dollar amount you can gift to leave additional impacts open for others- Thank You!**

Restorative Partners provides services and programs for those in-custody and for those released from the San Luis County Juvenile Hall, Jail, Honor Farm and State Prisons. Our restorative justice approach focuses on mind, body and spiritual transformation, incorporates trauma informed care, addresses responsibility and accountability, and offers accompaniment through reentry mentorship.
We also provide clean and sober living homes for men and for women as well as own and operate a home for women who are ready to reunite with their chldren and move forward with their lives. The goal in all of our transformative work is to reduce violence and lower recidivism by providing a continuum of care from incarceration through reincorporation to our community.
