Culinary Arts Does Community Service at Clarksdale Care Station
Care Station Community Service/Field Experience
On Thursday, October 25, students from the Culinary Arts class at Carl Keen Career and Technical Education Center visited the Clarksdale Care Station. The students have been learning about the vast field of Culinary Arts and were able to apply their learning to a real-life experience. They toured the facility and assisted in various areas, such as sterilization and sanitation, sorting, and storing goods. The students also donated food items such as bread and canned goods. The experience afforded the students with the history of the care station, the community members it serves, and the many volunteers who assist each day.

The female students represent nontraditional students for the Culinary Arts occupational field. Nontraditional students are students who choose a field of study for which their gender comprises less than 25% of the individuals employed in that particular occupation or field of work. Special thanks to the Care Station for making this experience possible.
