Cincinnati food bank also trains upcoming cooks

CINCINNATI (AP) - Two-thirds of Cincinnati's Freestore Foodbank's new administration building is dedicated to its culinary arts training program for at-risk, low-income people.

Now into its ninth year, Cincinnati Cooks, which has placed almost 500 of its 650 graduates in food-related jobs, is poised for more growth.

The plan is to increase its daily production from 800 meals at 15 Kids Cafe sites for low-income children to 2,000 meals at 22 locations.

A recent menu of chicken and rice, vegetable medley and fruit was the first prepared and shipped from the new kitchen.

Freestore believes the additional space should also help the program increase the number of participants in the cooking program.
