Culinary Arts Training Program Receives $289,000 in Funding from NYC Council

Project Renewal is excited to announce that the Culinary Arts Training Program has received a total of $289,000 from the NYC Council as part of the 2016 NYC Budget!

Our award-winning Culinary Arts Training Program is a six-month classroom, internship, and job-placement program that creates opportunities for 200 homeless and low-income New Yorkers, including veterans, each year. We place graduates in jobs at twice the rate of similar programs. 

We would like to thank NYC Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and Council Members Ulrich, Levin, Torres, Espinal, Cornegy, and Levine for supporting our program and making this possible. Thanks to your endless support, we will be able to train even more veterans and formerly homeless New Yorkers to be ready for careers in the culinary industry.
