Our Job Training Program

MealPro's culinary training program is a two week course at MealPro's research and development kitchen located inside our headquarters in Citrus Heights, CA.

The culinary training program's mission is to become an “organizational culture hub, introducing a continuous education process for the value chain and transforming knowledge into actual business results.”

Students take courses about food safety, kitchen equipment, customer service, and get hands-on experience in food prep and cooking techniques. At the end of the two week period students will obtain their Food Handler certificate and a program diploma.
