These teens from the Sonoma Valley Mentoring Alliance recently participated in our Food Handler’s and Service Etiquette classes. Then they put their skills to the test when they prepared and served a dinner at the Depot Hotel Restaurant for their mentors with help from Head Waiter David Gray and Executive Chef Antonio Ghilarducci. The mentors loved the food and were proud to see the results of the teens’ hard work.
Mentor Jan Erickson saw the benefits of this partnership. “I want to add my gratitude for the training that the Teen Services did for our girls. I can’t tell you how much these types of experiences are needed for them. They were so happy! The first night of training when I came to pick them up, all they could say is, ‘I passed the test!’ They worked hard and felt proud at completion!
Thank you to Depot Hotel Restaurant owner, Gia Ghilarducci for hosting us!
