Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida has several culinary internship opportunities available for qualified culinary students or recent graduates. These are unpaid/volunteer internships with Catering for Good.
Catering for Good is a full service catering company that is open to the public for hire (corporate events, birthdays, wedding receptions, and all special occasions). We do on-site events in our large community room, our huge warehouse and our intimate board room as well as off-site events at approved locations. We are a from-scratch kitchen and we make everything in-house. All of our proceeds go to help fund the Second Harvest Culinary Training Program.
Internships are offered year-round for the length of time specified by students’ academic requirements. Internship hours vary according to our bookings Monday- Saturday, with the very occasional Sunday event. Students will report to the Executive Chef, unless otherwise instructed based on daily tasks; weekly schedules will be provided.
Because of the many food-related services we provide to the community, the Second Harvest Culinary Internship Program is unique, providing a well-rounded experience. In addition to working on special events in catering (BOH and FOH), interns will gain some experience within a high-volume production kitchen and gain an understanding of food service through the non-profit and philanthropic sectors.
While working with each of our kitchen programs, students will gain an understanding of recipe development and testing, time management, inventory, purchasing and receiving, scheduling, HACCP, labor costs, portion and cost control, food production, quality control and guest satisfaction, while learning to work successfully by themselves and with a team.
