Salvation Army - Chattanooga, TN

Salvation Army School of Culinary Arts Open House

June 2010

Guests at the Open House learned about the program, sampled our students' culinary creations, met program participants and staff, and toured our facilities.

The School of Culinary Arts instructs local homeless and low income persons in environmentally friendly agriculture, meal preparation, and food service. The program culminates with a two-week internship in a local restaurant kitchen. Students will be considered for full-time employment at a partnering organization upon completion of the internship.

Two of the three graduates of the inaugural class have secured full-time employment and transitioned from homelessness to permanent housing. As the years progress, The Salvation Army excitedly awaits more stories of success and lives changed through the School of Culinary Arts.
