Increased education is linked to greater income, yet job training program costs prohibit low-income adults from acquiring needed skills. Head Start's Central Kitchen job program provides culinary training & employment for adults in poverty. In partnership with local gov't, non-profits & faith-based orgs, the 12 wk curriculum has students learning business skills while running a catering business (contributing to the program’s fiscal sustainability), & culminates in a food services certification. Grads are placed in a variety of job settings.
