Culinary Pathway

(CURRENTLY INACTIVE) This culinary job training program was created in 2019 to provide adults who are unemployed or underemployed with the professional skills required to achieve a successful career in the food service industry.


This nine-week program will be offered five times a year. Enrollment is limited to five students per session to ensure each student's success. Students receive hands-on culinary training by a professional chef.



The curriculum teaches the skills required by food service employers and includes: 

  • Professional Knife Skills
  • Basic Cooking Skills
  • Food Safety
  • Sanitation
  • Life Communication Skills

As part of the LAHIA Culinary Pathway program, students will prepare meals for the LAHIA community. Currently, LAHIA provides more than 850 meals per week to the homeless and food insecure population in the Stuart/Port Salerno area of Martin County. The program will also be a conduit through which community relationships are developed and nurtured as LAHIA reaches out to other non-profit organizations and the people they serve. Our neighborhood collaborations create ways to nourish the community while empowering its residents.
