CJTP celebrates with 48th graduating class

Friday was an exciting day here at the Food Shuttle. Our Culinary Job Training Program (CJTP) graduated its 48th class of students! The students celebrated their success and completion of an 11 week culinary program. For the 8 graduating students who used to be unemployed or under-employed, the day represented a new beginning. With the help of Food Shuttle staff, the CJTP students received not only culinary skills, but are given job placement aid to find meaningful employment in the culinary field. The graduation ceremony consisted of a wonderful meal made by the CJTP graduates, the presentation of certificates, speeches from staff and students, and many joyful faces.
