Community Kitchen Grad Teaches Others the Trade

Community Kitchen graduate Nick DeCamp
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.
