The Stone Soup Project
“Starting in 2015, the Stone Soup Job Skills Training Program is an active part of GWCARC and is run in partnership with the Virginia Cooperative Extension Office in Culpeper County. The program is designed to provide training on food safety and customer service,
and teaches basic culinary skills, with a focus on training low-income and mentally and intellectually challenged individuals in the five-county region of Culpeper, Fauquier, Madison, Orange, and Rappahannock counties for employment in the food service industry.
Graduates will be available for employment by the food businesses and users of
GWCFEC’s shared-use commercial kitchen and be trained
to assist with the co-packing operation at the facility.”
