Participants learn the importance of nutrition, safety, and being a team player, as well as the development of independence and life skills through preparing healthy and nutritious meals. Emphasis is not only on food preparation, produce selection and table preparation, but on safety, health and career opportunities as well.
Participants are taken on field trips to restaurants, markets and culinary schools in the area. Guest chefs come in to conduct special workshops (and are encouraged to volunteer year-round). This we feel will give participants a well rounded view of the cooking profession as it relates to job vocation and basic nutritional information.
