One day last year, KC was eating lunch in the Dining Room and asked someone about all the people in the kitchen wearing white chef’s coats. When she learned they were students in SVdP’s Kitchen of Champions Culinary Training Academy, KC made an appointment to find out about the program. She enrolled in the 12-week training program and gained confidence in her cooking abilities and a measure of self esteem. And she gained a pathway forward.
After graduation from the program, KC applied for and was admitted into the Culinary Arts program at Laney College – the first of her family to attend college. It all started with a hot meal ... and people who care.
