(3 Sessions – Must attend all)

Join us for a virtual event sponsored by CCUSA and presented by FareStart’s Catalyst Kitchens. The entire program includes 3, 3-hour sessions.

The training, exclusively for Catholic Charities member agencies, will help you evaluate whether incorporating job training into food service programs is a useful addition to improve kitchen operations and to create new job opportunities for clients. The workshop will improve your food service even if you decide not to add a workforce training component.

There is a modest fee for the 3-session training (9 hours), and the fee is discount because of CCUSA’s sponsorship. Space is limited. (Also, limit 2 persons per kitchen.)
