The ARCHS' Culinary Reentry Community Partnership is once again setting the table to provide ex-offenders the chance to cook up a new life path. Three weeks are left in the partnership class, and all 10 participants hope to graduate and enter the workforce with a valuable skill.
ARCHS’ ongoing partnership with St. Louis Community College provides participants with a fresh knowledge of preparation, cooking, sanitation, safety and much more. The class is five days a week.
“I told them at the start of the class they should take advantage of the opportunity,” said Chef David Green, who teaches the culinary class. “Each one of them has someone close to them who are counting on them. I know they all can make an impact on the industry.”
