PCK provides

Job training, life skills and hope for low-income adults.

Life skills not just knife skills

PCK is a 14-week culinary vocational training program which has been transforming the lives women and men with low-to-no income since 2000. Students in the 500-hour program will; earn their ServSafe certificate; intern in the culinary industry; prepare meals for those in need; and receive retention services by PCK staff for two years after graduation to ensure that students maximize their training and maintain positive work ethics post-graduation.

Giving back to those in need

While PCK promotes the self-sufficiency of its students by preparing them for and connecting them to work in commercial kitchens, and allows them to give back by preparing needed meals for those in need, another focus of the curriculum is on life skills, which helps students not just secure a job but provides tools for a second chance at life.
