Jeremy Robinson had no uncertainties about applying to The Culinary School at the Food Bank of Delaware.
His friend had a positive experience and successfully completed the 14-week training program. Not only did Jeremy’s friend enjoy the program and find meaningful mentors through Chef Instructors Tim Hunter and Sean McNeice, but he was able to obtain employment at the conclusion of training.
Hearing that motivated Jeremy to follow his passion.
“I was a fat kid, I always played with the food and flavors when I was a child. Everything about cooking enticed me,” said Jeremy.
More than half way through the 14-week program, Jeremy is already looking forward to his two-week internship and focusing on long-term goals after graduation.
“The Culinary School allows you to learn something new and teaches you so many methods of cooking,” he says. “You get to learn about yourself, cooking, and it helps you get a job. Why would you not reap these benefits?”
Jeremy dreams of owning is own restaurant on day, but is shooting high.
“If you have a passion for cooking then usually you dream to have your own restaurant? I guess if I had to choose one dream goal it would be to have my own cooking show,” he said with a huge grin.
