Culinary Career Academy

Cornerstone Community Center has a large commercial kitchen. It will serve event space catering needs, Wi-Fi Cafe, the food shelf, and the Culinary Career Academy.

In addition to the job training program that prepares individuals for careers in the food service industry, students develop and apply new skills by rescuing food that would otherwise be wasted from grocery stores, farms and food service companies. They learn to transform this food and create meals that are then distributed through food shelves and meal sites in our region. They will also serve customers in the Cornerstone Wi-Fi Cafe. We continue to collaborate and build relationships with Willing Hands, Vermont Food Bank, and other businesses that participate in our food programs. Currently, there is a shortage of trained cooks, and servers in Upper Valley restaurants, where patrons must wait, though there are empty tables available. The academy will impact this need in our community.

How The New CCC Facility Will Help Our Community​​​​

Increase Food Services Work Force
Our new building will aid us in graduating an estimated 40 students with new careers in the food services industry annually.
Provide Meals To Those In Need
Students of the Culinary Career Academy will learn to transform food into meals that will be distributed through food shelves and meal sites in our region, that would otherwise go to waste from local grocery stores, farms, and food service companies.
