Philabundance Community Kitchen

About PCK  

Philabundance Community Kitchen (PCK), an adult vocational training program for low-income adults, seeks prospective students for its next class, September 25 through mid-January. This 14-week program provides nearly 500 hours of culinary arts training and also offers exposure to guest chefs, catering opportunities, off-site internships and job placement services. In addition, retention services are offered for two full years to ensure that students maximize their training and maintain positive work ethics.

Open Houses

Prospective students must attend an open house, at which attendees will have the opportunity to hear what PCK has to offer to individuals looking for a second chance in life or a career in the culinary industry.

Attendees should expect to take a 7th grade reading and math test. Those who pass the test will have the opportunity to learn about the next steps for this adult vocational culinary program!
