Apprenticeship Program

Enroll in our Kitchen Apprenticeship Program

Our Apprenticeship Program trains and mentors those seeking a career in the food industry or entrepreneurship opportunities focused on food. The program will equip individuals with the knowledge and skills to develop and launch a small food business or to join the larger food and hospitality industry.

The Apprenticeship Program is a:

  • 6-month, up to 10 hours a week, placement with food industry professionals specializing in baking, butchering, and other culinary arts
  • Chance to learn invaluable business and marketing skills needed to operate a food business at local farmer’s markets
  • Opportunity to earn as much as $3600 for completing the maximum 240 program hours

At the start of the program, Apprentices will be matched with a “mentor”, a tenant from the Central Kitchen, who they will work with to create a mutually agreeable work schedule. Then, either before the program starts or during the first week, Apprentices must complete their ServSafe certification before working in the commercial kitchen, a requirement for those looking to work in the restaurant or food service sector.
