Training Program

Our teaching kitchen is the focal point of our operation and was created with the aim of broadening Napa’s workforce and inspiring a new generation of culinary professionals and entrepreneurs. We initially partnered with On The Move to start the Foodshed Internship Program. At the time, it was unique in providing Napa’s low-income youth and at-risk and underserved populations with work experience so that they could obtain a food handlers’ permit, work in a commercial kitchen and achieve economic self-reliance. Today our work-based training program is self-sustaining and focused on exposing local high school students to all aspects of the food service industry.
