Said Food Bank of Delaware President and CEO Patricia Beebe, “The first class of this culinary school represents long labor. Sometimes it is a test. This is the end of a long test, a successful test. We need to continue to raise funds to support this program.” The students spent 14 weeks developing their skills in the culinary arts and are prepared for entry-level jobs in the food industry.

Guest speaker, Dr. Christine Cannon, executive director, Arsht-Cannon Foundation , praised the program and urged students to “Consider other educational opportunities. Love what you do, and remember to give back to others.”
