Oakland free training leads to opportunities to work in Hell’s Kitchen

There are opportunities to work in Hell’s Kitchen, after free training in the Kitchen of Champions program at Oakland’s Society of St. Vincent de Paul.

Okay, so I may have embellished slightly, but it got your attention and it is possible. 

The Kitchen of Champions program is an extraordinary kitchen serving from 2,500 to 4,000 meals each week.

The free 12-week intensive culinary job training Kitchen of Champions   program prepares Alameda residents, 18 years old and older for entry-level job positions in food services and hospitality industries.

The training is Tuesdays through Saturdays at St. Vincent de Paul, 675 23rd St., Oakland and all interested persons must submit an application and attend an information session 10 a.m. on Tuesdays or Thursdays. 

Google, the Oakland Zoo, the Cheesecake Factory, Brown Sugar Kitchen, B Side BBQ, Berkeley and Oakland school districts, and AC Transit have hired graduates of the Kitchen of Champions.

If this is not for you, there is an old adage “There’s always work at the post office.”
