Food Safety Training

Reducing the incidence of food borne illness in communities.


Sink to Stove provides food safety and sanitation training with culinary professionals to school cooks in underserved communities who are not familiar with basic sanitary kitchen and food handling practices.

We conduct Sink to Stove trainings in all school kitchens that we build or update through our Food for Thought program. We also partner with other organizations that oversee feeding programs in other schools to train their cooks in these important concepts.

Many school cooks around the world have never had reliable access to water for cleaning and are not familiar with basic kitchen safety and food handling practices. Sink to Stove’s professional chef trainers work with school and community cooks to help reduce the incidence of food borne illnesses.

Sink to Stove has been implemented in Haiti, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Honduras.

The Impact:

520 school cooks trained

65,000 students impacted by improved practices

Chef-to-Chef training provides a sense of pride and ownership
