Job Training

Our 8-week Foodservice Training program offers the opportunity for individuals to learn to cook professionally at a real restaurant, helping them gain the experience they need to build a career in food services.

Dine Well. Do Good.

We train low-income and homeless Chicagoans for careers in the foodservice industry at Inspiration Kitchens, our social enterprise restaurant in East Garfield Park. Our graduates go on to work at some of the city’s hottest restaurants and catering companies, and have the opportunity to exit poverty for good.
