Chef Ann Foundation has partnered with California Community Colleges to create the Healthy
School Food Pathway Program, designed to support education and workforce development for
healthy school food in California.
The programs will provide California’s Community College students, incumbent school food service
staff, and displaced or transitional workers in related industries with education and paid hands-on
experience in operating healthy K-12 school meal programs. They are currently accepting
applications for the pre-apprenticeship with an application deadline of August 25, 2023, and a
program start date of October 23, 2023.
