The Philabundance Community Kitchen (PCK), an innovative 14-week culinary vocational training program, will be welcoming a new group of trainees on September 30.
The Carole Landis Foundation will be co-sponsoring one member of the incoming class.
Students who are accepted into the 500-hour program will earn a certificate that certifies them to be entry-level cooks; have an internship opportunity in the culinary industry; prepare meals for those in need; and receive retention services by PCK staff for two years after graduation to ensure that students maximize their training and maintain positive work ethics post-graduation.
While PCK promotes the self-sufficiency of its students by preparing them to work in commercial kitchens, another focus of the curriculum is on life skills, which helps students not just secure a job but a second chance at life.
PCK has been transforming the lives of low-income women and men since 2000.
Philabundance is the Delaware Valley’s largest hunger relief organization, acquiring, rescuing and distributing food to 90,000 people weekly in 9 counties in PA and NJ.
