The Salvation Army invites the community to The Salvation Army School of Culinary Arts graduation on Friday, beginning at noon. The event will be held in the ReCreate Café located at The Salvation Army, 800 McCallie Ave. Guests attending the graduation will learn more about the program, sample students’ culinary creations and meet program participants and staff.
The School of Culinary Arts instructs local homeless and low-income persons in environmentally friendly agriculture, meal preparation and food service. The program culminates with a two-week internship in a local restaurant kitchen. Students are considered for full-time employment at a partnering business upon completion of the internship.
"All graduates have now completed their internships and have jobs," officials said.
Each graduate will receive his or her diploma during the ceremony. Family and friends will join them in the celebration.
