Through Community Kitchen, the Food Bank’s culinary
job-training program, adults are trained to work in a professional
kitchen, learning food safety and other life skills necessary to
succeed on the job. In 2016, 93% of graduates secured employment in the
food and hospitality industry within three months. Recent graduate Nick
DeCamp now works teaching cooking skills to adults with disabilities.
