Culinary Farm-To-Table Certificate Program Offered at UH Maui College
Enrollment is open for a new Culinary Farm-To-Table Certificate of Professional Development being offered by the University of Hawaiʻi Maui College’s Office of Extended Learning & Workforce Development. The opportunity is sponsored by Hui No Ke Ola Pono in an effort to increase the workforce skills of Native Hawaiians.
Students will learn environmentally sustainable practices for food service operations, including sourcing from local farms. The non-credit course will also cover a basic introduction to culinary techniques with a focus on healthy cooking, principles of sanitation and OSHA safety training.
The Culinary Farm-to-Table course will take place at the beginning of March through the end of May, and will be preceded by a required cultural orientation in the evenings during the last week of February. Course lectures will be delivered on Thursday evenings from 6 to 8 p.m. and hands-on training will take place on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Individuals who wish to apply must contact [email protected] or (808) 984-3725 to schedule an on-campus appointment with College & Career Specialist Leilani Kepler.
Full tuition sponsorships are available, with preference given to individuals of Hawaiian ancestry to the extent permitted by law. Applicants must be ages 18 and older. Space in the program is limited.
