Chef Suman Discusses Community Food Works:Food Skills and Food Safety Training for Employability Program Community Food Works: Food Skills & Food Safety Training for Employability is a program that was initiated in 2011 by the Toronto Food Strategy at Toronto Public Health as a pilot project to addressed barriers to accessing food handler training among low-income communities. The project brokered relationships across government and community, and developed a new approach to service delivery that linked food handler training and certification, food skills, and employment as a determinant of health through a program delivered in a community kitchen setting. Upon successful completion of the project, the project was adopted as a formal program at Toronto Public Health in 2013.The program highlights how existing expertise, assets and resources available could be applied in collaborative fashion to address the long standing community development needs. The curriculum was designed to be adaptable by local instructors and community agencies to meet specific community needs of the program participants. It's a practical understanding of food safety as well as healthy eating within the context of cooking skills: an integration of theory and practice. Learner-centred adult education principles were also adopted to better meet the needs of targeted participants.See the entire video on Chef’s Media Page
