Culinary students to receive training at Loaves & Fishes

MARTINEZ, Calif. – In an effort to build awareness of the services provided by Loaves and Fishes of Contra Costa, along with its unique Culinary Training Program, program students will be joined by executives and other management representing BAC Community Bank to prepare and serve breakfast to 100-120 individuals in need at the Martinez dining room.

Loaves and Fishes of Contra Costa (LFCC) works diligently to feed the hungry of Contra Costa County throughout the year. LFCC serves 14,000 hot meals each month that are designed to fill the nutritional needs of people for whom this may be their only meal of the day.

Through its Culinary Training Program, LFCC trains Martinez Unified District high school students in basic culinary skills to provide the introduction to careers in the culinary industry.

Students will prepare a complete breakfast to serve to individuals in need. The breakfast will take place from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Oct. 15, at the Loaves and Fishes Dining Room, 835 Ferry St., Martinez. All in need of nourishment are encouraged to come and enjoy the students’ creations.
