FORT PIERCE — Seeking a career change to the culinary arts? Looking to level up your existing food service career? Treasure Coast Food Bank’s Culinary Training Academy can provide the next steps. The next 12-week session starts Jan. 31. Applications are due Jan. 28.

The program prepares students to know their way around a commercial kitchen, but also how to run a food service operation, such as a banquet hall, hotel dining operation, or catering business. Training comes not just from the classroom but from hands-on practice in planning, designing, and executing a menu.

The program is certified by the American Culinary Federation, and graduates can earn numerous certifications: ServSafe Managers’ Certification from the National Restaurant Association, Certified Guest Services Professional from the American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute, Nutrition 2.0 Certification from the National Restaurant Association, and Certified Fundamentals Culinarian from the American Culinary Federation.

Additionally, qualified graduates are eligible to receive credit for 4 classes in the Indian River State College Apprenticeship program or credit for 3 classes toward their associate’s degree.

The 12-week course takes place at Treasure Coast Food Bank’s Production Kitchen in Fort Pierce. Classes are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Some scholarships are available.
