What We Do

Community Culinary School of Charlotte (CCSC) provides Workforce Development training and job placement assistance for adults who face barriers to long-term successful employment. We provide paths to careers in the food service industry for adults whose barriers include: lack of skills, incarceration, addiction, homelessness, and Veterans' re-integration issues.

CCSC's overarching program goal is for graduates to move from dependency to self-sufficiency through stable employment. Our vision is to transform the lives of our students and their families and positively impact our community. CCSC currently trains and serves about 50 students and 120 CCSC alumni annually, providing them with training, job placement and referrals to other resources, including housing, low- or no-interest loans, medical and mental health services. But our impact extends beyond our training program to positively impact our students' families, the businesses they work for and create, and the communities in which they live and pay taxes when they join (or rejoin) the work force.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:

How We Are Impacted:
Cafe services remain open for take out Monday - Friday 9am to 2pm. Baked good are available starting at 9am, and lunch is available at 10:30am

How You Can Help:
Many of our community members have asked in recent days how they can support our organization and our students during this time. As always, a financial donation to CCSC is the single best way to help.

Your financial support, particularly at this time, will ensure CCSC can bridge the gap and continue to support our staff and students as we await a return to our normal operations.
