Bread For Life

"Let's Get to Work!"

Bread for Life promises hospitality job training that brings together industry leaders as instructors, a dedicated crew of volunteers, and local participants. Participants embark on an 8-week experience that starts with a thoughtfully developed classroom curriculum and paid hands-on work training. Those enrolled will develop a network of hospitality professionals, creating viable job leads which will prepare them for a sustainable career in the hospitality job market.

We offer an opportunity to learn, practice, retrain, and gain confidence through a well-established program. By tapping into a workforce seeking a second chance, Bread for Life is ready to get you to work.


Participants must be currently unemployed, 18+ years old, and a resident of Clarke County. Applicants seeking a second chance, including those with a criminal history, addiction history, victims of domestic violence, and anyone receiving SNAP benefits, are encouraged to apply.
