...I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.

Food services is one of the fastest growing industries in America.
Abundant Life Kitchen Food Service Training, provided by Knox Area Rescue Ministries, is designed to give men and women staying at KARM an opportunity to improve their lives by training for employment in the food services industry.
The training occurs within the context of KARM food service business operations. Students are not paid while they are in the program, but their essential needs are met by KARM. Classroom and lab training are followed by an optional four-week internship.
A typical day includes classroom instruction, practical labs and kitchen activities at a Knox Area Rescue Ministries location, or assisting with a contract foods or catering project offsite.
Upon successful completion of the training, a student will have completed the ServSafe® exam, a food-safetytraining program and certification offered through the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation. The program also includes a job readiness class, emphasizing
essential skills for being a good employee and team player.
The goal of the ALK program is to help people be gainfully employed.
There are many opportunities for employment in food services locally. Knoxville and the surrounding area have a diverse selection of restaurants, along with large business, education, healthcare, hospitality, and convention food service operations.
