With Homelessness action week having just passed, the issue of poverty and homelessness on the North Shore has community members and organizations looking for viable solutions for low-income residents.
The HAVE Culinary Training Society gives students eight weeks of customized kitchen training, which guides residents and gives them the skills needed to obtain a career in the hospitality industry.
The non-profit program has recently expanded from the Downtown Eastside to the Lookout Emergency Aid Society‘s North Shore shelter.
Four students to have graduated the program are now working hard in various North Shore restaurants.
Visit the HAVE website to see how you can hire a graduate at your restaurant.
