CDN Supports Foodservice Job Training Programs with Product Donation
August 23, 2012,
PORTLAND, Ore.-CDN is donating more than 1,000 kitchen thermometers to Catalyst Kitchens, a collaborative national network of non-profit organizations that assists the homeless and individuals in need in training and finding employment in the foodservice industry.
These non-profit organizations aid the homeless by hosting foodservice training programs in food banks, soup kitchens and homeless shelters. CDN's thermometers will be used for hands-on in-house training in foodservice skills while preparing fresh, nutritious food for the homeless and disadvantaged that visit the shelters. Food safety is a vital part of the job training that will prepare participants to make them eligible for foodservice employment.
