Community Kitchen Academy | Certificate

Community Kitchen Academy (CKA) is a seven-week culinary training program. At CKA, you’ll learn from professional chefs in modern commercial kitchens and graduate with the skills and knowledge to work in the field of food service.

Throughout the course, you’ll develop and apply new skills by preparing food that would otherwise be wasted from grocery stores, restaurants, farms, and food service companies. The food you cook is then distributed through food shelves and meal sites throughout the community.

CKA features: hands-on learning, national ServSafe Food Manager certificate, Vermont Division of Liquor Control First Class Server Training, job placement support, tuition and financial assistance for income eligible students, and connections to community and resources.

CKA is available at two locations: Barre and Burlington.
