Cooking as Rehabilitation

 

Breadsticks Community Servings' Teaching Kitchen offers a 12-week food service job-training program, focused on those facing barriers to employment. In the kitchen, trainees learn about food preparation, nutrition, menu planning, food safety and sanitation. In addition, trainees receive job placement support, interview and resume writing assistance and job readiness skills highlighting the importance of punctuality, teamwork and cooperation.
 
The program recently got a wonderful write up in the Boston Globe. In the article, columnist Adrian Walker quoted Teaching Kitchen Manager, Susan Logozzo: "I really think the reason the program works so well is because from the minute they get here there is a lot of attention to detail and a lot of support.''
 
Recently, the Teaching Kitchen whipped up some delicious bread. Ever wonder how to make the perfect breadstick? The Job Trainees and Teaching Kitchen Manager, Susan Logozzo will step you through it!
