The Re-Entry Program is designed specifically for prisoners looking to completely turn their lives around. We work with municipalities to positively affect these people who range in age from as young as 15 to 75 years old. We teach the participants soft skills like looking someone in the eye, shaking hands and even pulling their pants up. We then use culinary instruction to teach them the hard skills of teamwork, reliance and more so they are prepared when they are released from prison.

It’s important that we make an impact on participants each and every time we are there because we may not see the same person twice during the program. When they exit prison, we offer a resume package for them to take to employers to help with the job search process. We also work to get individuals hired at local restaurants and hotels.
