Chef Training Program

Customer Chef Training at West Side Campaign Against HungerWest Side Campaign Against Hunger is committed to helping people overcome the obstacles to jobs. Our bilingual 12-week Chef Training Program, now in its fifteenth year, is taught by Chef Andrea Bergquist, who has over ten years of experience cooking in kitchens of major New York restaurants. Chef Andrea’s course is designed to teach the basic skills that will help get a starting job in a kitchen, including knife skills and sanitation.

We are always looking for dedicated, disciplined and committed students who are eager to learn, build technical skills, and are willing to work in the food industry. The class meets four times a week from 12 to 4 p.m.
