Los Padres Corpsmember Bryce DeGeus works in the center’s kitchen to prepare dinner for more than 70 Corpsmembers.

What can you get out of the CCC culinary program?

For most Corpsmembers, it’s a healthy, well-cooked meal at the end of a day of hard work.

For those doing the cooking, it’s an opportunity to jumpstart a career in the culinary arts, or it’s just the chance at conversation and maybe some compliments.

The Corpsmember cooks at the Los Padres Center are in culinary for a variety of reasons, but they all bring a passion and curiosity to learn how its done.
