Workforce Development Grant

We are pleased to announce that our organization has been awarded a Workforce Development grant from the US Department of Agriculture.  With this funding, CCCI will establish a food service education program for Barnstable residents. The program is designed to develop skills and business education for individuals with an interest in food service professions and ultimately bolster the workforce in the culinary industry on Cape Cod. You can read more about it here. As this program develops and we work with partners across the Cape, you will hear more.  Big news for us!!

Barnstable Youth Fall Cooking Classes

As we roll into a Fall schedule, we will once again be conducting cooking classes for Youth in Barnstable thanks to our previous grant for the state. This year we will be working with the YMCA Y Achievers program and conducting cooking classes for those high schoolers. Our culinary class program for this group will take 8-10 students and work with them on culinary skills that will be life skills but also open the door for some who may want to follow the path to a profession in the food industry. This is a fun and motivated group of young folks in our community. 

Cheese Making Class

And something for the adults --- Do you like cheese?  Ever want to learn how it is made? Our board member and virtuoso food maker, Linda Davey, will be doing a demonstration at KAM Appliances in Hyannis on October 22nd. You can learn more and sign up here.

Annual Meeting

Our Annual Meeting is set for Monday, October 7th at 5pm at Old Yarmouth Inn and is open for any who would like to attend. If interested, please email us.

Giving Meals for Thanksgiving

Our countdown to Thanksgiving continues.  If you haven’t watched our clock – check out our home page. We are now less than 70 days from Thanksgiving. This is a big community project and we are grateful to all our partners. We are cooking a prepared full Thanksgiving turkey for 50 families. And it take a village to get it organized, source the food, line up the cooking & refrigeration storage, get it distributed to the right folks. It's a big deal. Let us know if you want to participate.

Canning Class 

With all those great foods from your summer gardens – are you interested in canning? The UMass Food Science team is hosting sessions to discuss commercializing acidified canned food products.  There is a 3-hour workshop and an abridged 1-hour webinar to discuss a recently completed project that developed 12 acidified shelf-stable food products for commercial use. This is targeted to stakeholders that have access to commercial kitchens that are interested in processing acidified canned foods. 

Thank you.

Harry Henry,
Board President
Summer wrapped up with a fun kid’s class in August at KAM Appliances. Moms & Grandmas got to watch the kids learn and have fun and then got to eat it the results!!
