The Community Kitchen
Community Kitchen is a culinary job-training program for low-income or jobless adults. Chefs teach the full-time, 14-week course in the industrial kitchen and classroom space at the Rhode Island Community Food Bank.
In each class, twelve to thirteen students participate, gaining cooking skills and learning about food service as well as work-readiness skills to succeed on the job. They also create healthy meals for Kids Cafe which provides afterschool meals to children at community organizations.
