Head Chef/Founder of Red Rose Culinary Academy
Henry Howard wants to give San Francisco’s ex-convicts and homeless people a new chance at life by teaching them how to cook. In June, Howard opened the Red Rose Culinary Art Academy to teach basic kitchen skills to members of those populations, many of whom are unemployed and seeking work. The 16-week curriculum will teach 30 students a wide range of disciplines like knife skills, spices, cooking methods and sauces. The program is designed to help the students transition back into society by helping them find jobs in the food service industry after graduation.
Brothers For Change is made up in large part of a dedicated group of volunteers. Volunteering with BFC is a rewarding and fun experience and makes a positive, impactful difference.
