The Culinary Job Training Program (CJTP) is an eleven-week hands-on program taught by professional chefs and a social worker. Men and women with severe life challenges are prepared for careers in food service.
History and Goals
CJTP help our graduates obtain and keep meaningful employment with over 60 employer-contacts in the Triangle
CJTP depends on volunteers from the Triangle Chefs Association, Wake Tech's Culinary School, and certified sanitation instructors who work with the students preparing food. Wake County Human Services and similar agencies play a role in the selection process as well as aiding in the training and teaching of life skills and support. Contact Terri@FoodShuttle.org for more information.
CJTP Students Receive
Food Sources and Meal Recipients
40,000+ lbs. of food from a variety of donors are available weekly for CJTP from IFFS Food Recovery. Students learn to convert this food into hundreds of nutritious, well-balanced meals, which are then delivered to local soup kitchens and children's programs. This helps these small non-profits target their limited funds for services rather than food.
