Salvation Army Culinary School Helps Feed Fire Evacuees

Jan 12, 2018 | by SNW

The Salvation Army Culinary Training Academy in Napa was started in 2016, for those that are homeless or recovering from substance abuse receive hands-on job-training. It is a rigorous four-month program followed by a two-month internship that qualifies graduates to work in the culinary industry.

Students from The Salvation Army culinary school stepped up to the plate to help feed evacuees and first responders this past October when wildfires spread throughout the Napa, Sonoma & Santa Rosa region.

The team worked nonstop for 17 hours each day, preparing hot food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The intense training that these students received in the classroom helped served thousands of individuals and families- over 20,000 meals were served and 7,000 food boxes distributed.

This goes to show that sharing our blessings with one another is one of the greatest blessings of all.
