That’s my Jam Sandwiches is a brand that, amongst other things, loves to share our appreciation of art and art culture through our Artisanal sandwiches, Art and community because it truly means a lot to the team. However, we cannot embark on this journey authentically without voicing our commitment to being an inclusive organization. Most Importantly, We have an opportunity to write our own rules for success in this regard. Though we want to earn a living and grow, we also want to do this while simultaneously achieving the following goals:
1. To grow and educate a culturally diverse team on how to operate a successful business in a team environment. So they develop skills that can help them succeed in life after That’s My Jam
2. Engage our team to decide how we will contribute to the local community
3. Promote local artists through our social platforms
4. Provide access to educational advancement opportunities to support and further uplift the greater community.
5. Inspire Creativity
It has always been a passion of ours to use the restaurant business to educate our staff, by focusing on tasks/skills that can be used throughout their lives. Also, We always focus our training on how skills learned here can be used in life after TMJ.
We can’t tackle this subject by ourselves, we need to get the team involved. Therefore, We will be tasking our team to decide on how we will help our local community, with a budget of $1000 for supplies/resources. Also, We will focus on causes that help the less fortunate and underrepresented.
This is the fun part for us. We love art and artists. We are artists, we have hired artists, and always seek out artists to connect with and promote. We hope to grow our brand and presence online, and in turn, provide a place to shine. We have an entire dining room we would like to fill with artwork, we have no intention to profit from these artists but we may need to cover expenses.

The Policy and Complaints Procedure comprises three sections:

This policy has been adapted since we opened as it was originally an anti-racism policy. As committed as we are to being a workplace free of racism, it goes beyond race so we have adjusted the verbiage a little to be more inclusive. Above all, the policy aims to clarify and establish clear boundaries that we can operate within in a safe manner for all parties concerned. Reach out to us, we deliver.
