Teaching Kitchen a Pipeline
for Skilled Kitchen Staff
Since 2009, Community Servings'  Teaching Kitchen has provided 
food service job training to hundreds of unemployed individuals 
who face barriers to full-time employment. As they learn basic food service and job-readiness skills, trainees work alongside
Community Servings' kitchen staff, making valuable contributions 
to the agency's mission, which includes making 2,200 medically tailored meals each day.
"The Teaching Kitchen program is a natural extension of our core mission," David B. Waters, CEO, explains. "Trainees gain experience working in a professional kitchen while helping us to feed more sick clients."   

Community Servings' culinary team is made up of six Teaching Kitchen alumni. "We often hire Teaching Kitchen graduates
because we have seen first-hand what they're able to do and
they've already committed themselves to our mission," said
Kevin Conner, Executive Chef.

June is National Fresh Fruits
& Vegetables Month! 
Don't let the simple ingredients fool you - this crisp
salad is packed with flavor and nutrients. The peppery flavor of the radish balances with the sweet watermelon. The familiar combination of feta cheese, walnuts, and
citrus offer a brightness that brings this salad all together. 

Radish 101
Radishes are a peppery root vegetable thought to have made their debut in Massachusetts as early as 1629! They are  low in calories and offer  important nutrients like fiber and vitamin C. 

Radishes are most abundant between the months of April and July. Choose plump, firm, and smooth radishes that are free of blemishes. Enjoy them raw, sautéed, or roasted.

Spice up your next meal with radishes!  Check out these recipe ideas .

Thank You!
