BENEFITING: Episcopal Community Services, Inc.
The only way to break the poverty cycle is with income. And The Culinary Cornerstones Job Training Program provides the opportunity for that to happen, with job training and employment assistance. This program is especially targeted for at-risk individuals who have significant barriers to employment. Last year, 50% of our students had been in prison and were trying to turn their lives around. One-third were single parents with children, some escaping abusive homes. The Culinary Cornerstones Program provides classroom and in-service training for the food service industry. We also provide life skills and career management skills. Students graduate with Culinary Cornerstones certificate, ServSafe certification, CPR certification and a Food Handlers card. Help change lives, one student at a time.
