Culinary Arts Program
The purpose of the Thunder Road Culinary Arts Program is to provide expert instruction in culinary arts that results in transferable skills into the food industry, including catering, restaurants and bakeries. The curriculum inspires self-confidence, self-reflection, leadership and transformation in clients’ growth and personal development.
During eight-week training cycles, culinary students attend hands-on cooking labs, visit local restaurant kitchens and bakeries, assist with client and staff meals, and prepare most of the facility’s snacks and desserts. They are also able to cater a few private events. Thunder Road clients participating in the Culinary Arts program may receive school credits from the Alameda County Office of Education.
