MEALS FOR CHANGE

Since January 2017 the Culinary Quick Start program has employed over 400 graduates in a multitude of different culinary jobs in the greater Denver area. This program benefits both sides of the Denver community by helping restaurants find employees and community members find work in a field they are passionate about. This four week training program is offered at no cost to the student and teaches knife skills, ServSafe and kitchen fundamentals while building confidence and giving our graduates the power to go after their dreams. Government grants and workforce dollars can only go so far. Now more than ever CQS needs the industry it has been supporting throughout the past two years to come together and show support by getting involved for Meals for Change.
