More about the Community Culinary School
I found the Community Culinary School by chance, thanks to my sister-in-law. Speaking with Executive Director, Dawn Hammocott, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, I learned that after selling her bakery in downtown New Milford she started the school with a passion to help others. It began as a hopeful idea and became a huge success.
The Community Culinary School offers culinary training and job placement to unemployed and underemployed adults age 18 and over who are interested in starting a new career in the food service industry. During each 12-week session economically at-risk individuals receive culinary and life skills training which help them to overcome the barriers to employment that they have faced. Graduates qualify for positions in an industry always in need of reliable, trained help. Food produced in the classes is distributed to the hungry in the community via the New Milford Food Bank, serving up to 150 households weekly. The program addresses the root causes of hunger in our community.
To date the Community Culinary School has achieved:
–> 96% job placement rate
–> 95% job retention rate
–> 100% of grads have received ServSafe Certification
