Supported By The Snapchef Foundation

The Snapchef Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c3) organization, believes that everyone deserves the opportunity to build a fulfilling culinary career. It provides aspiring professionals with tuition-free or subsidized training, mentorship, and job placement services.

Knife Skills & Life Skills = A Better Future

New to the foodservice industry? No problem. Our one-week, FastTrack Culinary Training program is a proven model to jumpstart your culinary career. The best part? You’ll earn while you learn; we build your work schedule around your training time.

In just 20 hours, you’ll gain all the skills you need to begin work in a commercial kitchen. You’ll learn basic food and kitchen safety, how to handle and maintain a knife, how to identify kitchen equipment and ingredients, dry and moist heat cooking methods, and much more. Most training is done virtually, along with an optional (live) Q&A with a professional chef. Qualified applicants will receive the training for free (or at a reduced fee), along with a starter kit that includes a uniform and accessories.
