The Merici Kitchen Project provides a sequential series of training classes in a commercial grade kitchen which will help individuals not only foster independence but to also add the skills necessary for job placement in the food service industry at a level which has previously been unavailable to our client base.  Individuals who wish to acquire/improve skills for home application may also participate.   

 Classes include training in safe food handling procedures, knife skills, kitchen equipment use and safety, food storage procedures, prevention of contamination and cross-contamination, proper waste disposal and recycling, kitchen sanitation, accident prevention, emergency procedures, food preparation and work-related personal hygiene/health practices. 

“Soft skills” specific to the work environment such as social skills, self-awareness and self-management, clear communication, problem solving, critical thinking, job expectations, and understanding the importance of a positive work attitude, being on time and workplace ethics are addressed as well.    

At the conclusion of each class series, participants will receive a certificate of completion and performance summary.
