We hope you will choose the Community Culinary School as your charity and become a part of a global celebration of generosity.   In this time of giving thanks, we extend our sincere gratitude to our loyal supporters. With your help, we’re able to train our students for careers. Students that graduate from our program enter the workforce ready to embark on stable, long-lasting careers in the food service industry and not a dead-end job with no room for advancement. While our participants come to us for many reasons, they all have the same goal: the hope for a better life for themselves and their families. After gaining experience in the field, our graduates have found the following success in their careers: Luke holds the position of Head Chef at American Kitchen in New Milford. Justin heads a kitchen at an assisted living facility. This full-time job with benefits has enabled him to purchase his first home! Derrick earned the position of Sous Chef at the Watermark at East Hill Retirement Community. Lauren continued her education at the Culinary Institute of America and she now works as a private chef and gets to travel with her employers. Charitable gifts, from supporters like you, help fund culinary training, provide meals for the hungry within our community, and give our students the knowledge and tools needed for a successful career path within the food service industry.  Your gift will make a world of difference. Thank you! GIVE TODAY BONUS RECIPE: Looking for a holiday dessert?  Try these pumpkin chocolate cookies from our grad, Mary Helen. From all of us at the Community Culinary School, we wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving and Holiday Season.
