Give One is proud to support the budding entrepreneurs that are engaged with Crossroads Community Farm Network. Located in Takoma Park, Crossroads Community Food Network has opened a community kitchen to help lower the barriers to entry for food entrepreneurs that are using local produce to provide healthy food to the community!

"Let us share a success story of Nancia Sical, who runs Nancia’s Antojitos and sells Guatemalan food at the Crossroads Farmers Market. Having the use of a licensed commercial kitchen allowed Nancia to change her company's permitting status and become an official catering business. She now can cater weddings, parties and any special occasion. Nancia's big heart and creativeness is apparent in all she does. As a teacher working with homeless youth in her native Guatemala, Nancia's inventiveness helped her make the most out of the limited resources she had to work with. Now that she's brought her passion for cooking and nourishing those around to Maryland, Nancia has been selling traditional Guatemalan small plates, antojitos, at Crossroads Farmers Market. Here her customers don't mind waiting in line, as they are grateful for the smells and flavors that embody home. Though the recipes originate miles away, Nancia sources many of her ingredients from local farmers, making the freshest and tastiest dishes. Nancia is famous for her carne asada & tortillas con carne, tamales (vegetable and chicken), taquitos and tostadas. Her edible fruit arrangements are a favorite at parties!"
