Our Food Services Training Program is a 4-month program that teaches men and women how to cook in a commercial kitchen. It also builds self-esteem and confidence, which are fundamental to an individual’s success. The participants in this program take courses in Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS), health and safety, food handling, standard first aid, and knife handling skills. They learn first-hand in a working kitchen how to prepare and present a variety of meals.

Since this program started in 2004, we’ve had 173 graduates and 90% of those students are employed in the food services industry.
