Food Jobs Work
In partnership with Our House shelter and Rock City Reentry, Food Jobs Work trains the underemployed for work in hospitality and foodservice through an intensive, 6-week culinary program. Students learn the basics of back-of-house work (sanitation, knife work, sauté, basic cookery) as well as soft skills determined by the US Department of Labor as critical to success in foodservice. And most of all, we restore hope by identifying strengths, encouraging our students, believing in them and lifting them up so they can succeed. At the end of our program, they are placed in employment through our partner organization, Arkansas Food Jobs.
