Second Helpings' Culinary Job Training Program Earns ACF Recognition

Second Helpings is pleased to announce that our Culinary Job Training program has been recognized by the American Culinary Federation Education Foundation as a "Program of Excellence," earning "Quality Program" status.  Quality Program status is given to programs that require less than the 1000 training hours official accredited programs require, but whose mission, curriculum, teaching methods and outcomes match the quality and standards required by the American Culinary Federation.

"This verifies what we've always believed," says Chef Carl Conway, Second Helpings' Director of Training.  "We offer a top-notch program education-wise, and this endorsement allows our graduates to go out into the culinary workforce with another stamp of approval on their education.  Let's hope it opens more doors for our graduates."

None of this would be possible without the tireless support we get from our partners at Ivy Tech Community College, The Chef's Academy, and our local chapter of the American Culinary Federation, who supported us every step of the way!
