Last week we joined our grantee Food For Life for the graduation of its recent cohort. As we shared in a previous profile of the organization, Food For Life provides unemployed youth (generally ages 18-23) with culinary training as both a career-building and life development tool. The organization also sells gourmet meals prepared by the students in order to generate revenue to support the training program.
Last week’s graduation featured a delicious meal prepared by the students and many fun stories about their time in the Food For Life kitchen. The recent cohort (pictured above) includes four young women who are now set to begin interviewing for jobs in the culinary industry and are looking forward to the start of their promising new careers.
