Today is the day! 12 men and women looking to start a culinary career came in bright and early to start session 50 of the Culinary Job Training Program. It's going to be an exciting thirteen weeks for them as they learn cooking techniques, safe food handling, job readiness and life skills and much more. Our great CJTP team of Chef Terri ,Sharon, Chef Will, and Sue will be with them every step of the way. We're really excited about our 50th session of CJTP. From now until Graduation Day in March, we will be bringing lots of CJTP features your way. Interviews with students, guests chefs, field trips- it's going to be a lot of fun. Here's Chef Terri kicking things off this morning.
And here's some bonus footage for you, in honor of this being the 50th session. We hope you enjoy the videos we make. We like doing them and we hope they give you a better look at the problem of hunger, how we work to solve it and the great people (staff and volunteers!) who make it happen.
But it's not easy, or always safe. Watch Chef Terri get bonked trying to do a take this morning. Kids, don't try this at home.
