We offer cooking courses a couple times per year to survivors. It’s incredibly fulfilling to watch women begin the class with nerves and little experience, and complete the course with confidence and feeling qualified to apply for work in the restaurant industry.
The Culinary Art program is fully funded by Freedom For All and at no cost to participants. Utensils and ingredients for the training are provided during the class. The participants will receive free public transportation (metro fare for 6 classes), $50 gift card and the certificate of completion. Participants will also receive future employment opportunities.
Angela Williams, the culinary program instructor is a graduate from The Art Institute of New York City in Culinary Art and Restaurant Management. She has seven years working in the hospitality industry. Additional instructors will be directly involved at the training center (commercial kitchen setting) They will teach the participants the essentials needed for future employment.
The classes take a field trip to the supermarket and purchase recipe ingredients. The participants will learn how to read recipes and follow instructions for food preparation, cooking, baking and table setting presentation.
Look at what they made in 2016! Looks delicious!
