Walnut & Park Café, which is names after it's intersection street name locations has announced that they'll be adding a 2nd location inside of the new Harrison Circle Apartments building in Kalamazoo. In a Press release, KPEP announced how the new café plans to help students grow and prepare to enter the workforce:

Like the original Walnut & Park – named for its corner location in the Vine neighborhood – the new café is staffed largely by students of KPEP, a community corrections provider based in Kalamazoo. Led by a management team, the staff members are students or graduates of the KPEP hospitality program, a rigorous 8-week vocational training program that equips men and women who have been incarcerated with job skills to live independently.
