How many among us started out with a job in a restaurant? From washing dishes, to bussing tables, to prepping food on the line, restaurants have been a gateway to the workforce for millions of North Americans. Those first jobs taught us efficiency, team work, and diligence. The kitchen is where we learned to stay cool, even when the heat is on. It’s where we grew up and became providers. And now, Dalstrong is given back some of what we gained along the way.
The Careers through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP) is a workforce development nonprofit that provides underserved teens a pathway to success.
Annually, C-CAP provides culinary, job and life skills to over 20,000 middle-and-high school students in seven regions across the United States: New York City, Newark, Philadelphia and Camden, Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington DC/Maryland/Northern Virginia and Arizona, including 7 Navajo Reservation schools.
Dalstrong donates knives, cookware, and other culinary tools to C-CAP to support this next generation of fierce culinary leaders.
