In this episode, Jessica Ganga our Communications & Digital Media Coordinator met up with Cyndi Kleinbart, chef and program manager of the Soups and Sweets Culinary Training Program at the Samost Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Southern New Jersey. They talked about the history of the program and how they provide culinary training to individuals with disabilities, to help prepare them for a career in the hospitality or food industry.

The program includes 200 hours of food service training in a commercial kitchen and weekly work readiness classes that address issues such as conflict management, sexual harassment, supervision, stress management, and teamwork. Training is conducted by a professional chef and an experienced special education instructor. The ServSafe Food Handler Course and certification exam are also offered as part of the training program. Criteria for participation include the ability to work independently and as part of a team; the ability to read simple recipes and perform simple fractions, appropriate hygiene and social skills; and the interest and motivation to pursue a career in the food service industry. Training is funded by Kessler Foundation through the New Jersey Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services. For information on this program, contact Barbara Abrams at babrams@jfedsnj.org
