September 6 – October 20 CULINARY TRAINING

Looking for at-risk young adults interested in culinary training

Do you know any 18-24 year old young adults from at-risk backgrounds who want to gain the skills to get a job in the food/restaurant industry?

Friends:

Fresher Sacramento is starting its first training cohort on September 6 – October 20 for at-risk young adults to learn the basic skills to gain first jobs in the industry. Working with funding from the City of Sacramento Gang Task Force to reduce violence, we have partnered with La Familia to provide wrap around services, including GED completion if needed, workforce skills development, career counselling, etc. There is no charge to participants for this training! Transportation vouchers will be available.

The training takes place at La Familia’s new Maple Campus near Fruitridge and 99 and includes 106 hours of instruction. Participants will be introduced to front of the house and back of the house skills, while also gaining ServSafe certification. The Art Institute of California, Sacramento, is also sponsoring this training and will put its stamp on their certificate of completion. Chef Pamela Chokan-Quetzal, an AI instructor, is supervising the program, with instruction by Chef Luis Ramirez, who personally knows the background and needs of youth who are at-risk.

We will also provide support in gaining employment, either with Fresher Sacramento as we expand our production of prepared meals for neighborhoods in need or in other restaurants and food industry settings.

Please reply to rabbidavid@freshproducers.org with referrals, or have candidates contact Chef Luis directly at: luismaxfit@gmail.com

Please help us bring these services to more neighborhoods in need and at-risk individuals: Contribute Today!

Thanks for our partnership in creating a nutritious cycle of health, wealth and skills for life.

Sincerely,

Rabbi David, CEO

September 30-October 2 INTERFAITH SPIRITUALITY RETREAT

6TH ANNUAL FUNDRAISING DINNER
Saturday September 24, 2016, 5:30 – 8:30 pm

“THE INTERFAITH SPIRITUALITY AND
PRACTICE OF JESUS”
Presented by:
Tom P Bonacci, CP

In our complex and often dangerous World, we need to pause and reflect with those who have inspired us with their courage and wisdom. On this weekend retreat, we pause with Jesus. His time, like ours, was a time of turmoil, uncertainty, and violence. The Gospel of Jesus was born out of adversity. We pause to reflect with Jesus that we might reflect Jesus to everyone we meet. The Interfaith Spiritual Practice of Jesus will serve to challenge any tendency or temptation we might have to despair over our contemporary times. Listen in as Jesus encounters the lovely Lady of Samaria. Be transformed as he is challenged by the Syro-Phoenician Woman. Discover once again who your neighbor is as you are transfixed by the Samaritan. Let the Military Officer who loved his slave shepherd you in the way of peace. Walk anew in the following of Jesus and discover the pathway to the hearts of even those you are tempted to fear.
