The Community Servings Teaching Kitchen trains individuals interested in careers in the food service industry who are currently un/underemployed or facing barriers to full-time employment. As they learn food service skills, program participants also help our kitchen staff prepare the meals we deliver to our clients each day.  

Utilizing our state-of-the-art industrial kitchen, which provides an exceptional training venue for applying a well-structured and truly hands-on learning experience, this 12-week curriculum covers all facets of working in a professional kitchen including food safety and sanitation, menu planning, food preparation, nutrition, packaging, and delivery. In addition, participants receive job-readiness skills highlighting the importance of punctuality, attendance, cooperation, and teamwork as well as writing a resume, interviewing, and job placement assistance.  

Up to 12 students are enrolled in each of the four course cycles offered annually with classes scheduled Monday through Thursday from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM and Friday from 7:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
Please contact Allison, Job Readiness & Employment Manager, at 617 522-7777 x206 or, if you are interested in learning more about or participating in this training program. If you are a food service employer, we would welcome the opportunity to discuss your staffing needs and how we might partner with you.
