Hi, I'm looking for information about entrepreneurial/job training programs
with teens and adults working in the culinary/catering/baking industry. I know
a little bit about Homeboy Bakeries in East L.A., but I'm specifically
interested if anyone knows of programs or interest in the Bay Area.
I work for Mid-Peninsula Housing Coalition, and we are in the process of
developing a 148-unit family project in San Jose, that also has a banquet
facility in addition to the usual community space and computer classroom.
We're planning on putting in a new commercial kitchen, and hope to do at least
lunch and dinner events, although we may be short on parking for weddings.
Using this facility as a training center would be perfect. Thanks for your
Mid-Peninsula Housing Coalition
