Triad Community Kitchen Culinary Training
The Triad Community Kitchen (TCK) Culinary Training Program is one of a kind in the region and dedicated to empowering people to achieve their goals of employment and self-sufficiency. Led by Chef Jeff Bacon, an ACF Certified Executive Chef and member of the American Academy of Chefs, TCK is a certified model program of Catalyst Kitchens.

Unemployed or underemployed candidates are referred by Forsyth Technical Community College, Goodwill Industries of Northwest NC, partner agencies of Second Harvest Food Bank and others. Sessions meet for 13 weeks (12 weeks of instruction and a one-week internship).

Classes held during the first 12 weeks meet Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Training includes:

• Certification in ServSafe® sanitation
• Basic culinary skills
• Basic baking skills
• Knife skills
• Kitchen safety
• Mass food production
• Cook-chill technology training
• Catering Production

Training also includes instruction and activities designed to help ensure students are “workplace ready." The one-week internship with a local food service organization or restaurant provides students with “real world” job experience. Selected graduates participate in Providence Restaurant's Hospitality Residency Program and all graduates are encouraged to obtain further training and professional development through continued study.

Triad Community Kitchen graduates between 60-80 students per year, ready for employment in the food service and hospitality industries. Throughout their training, students have the opportunity to “give back” as they use donated and purchased food to produce vacuum sealed, ready-to-heat meals for distribution to Second Harvest Food Bank partner programs, such as soup kitchens, emergency shelters and others.
