Champions of Change
Marianne is the Director of DCCK’s Culinary Job Training Program, which empowers unemployed men and women of the DC metropolitan area, many of whom have been homeless, incarcerated, and drug-addicted, to begin careers in the culinary arts. Under her direction, culinary instruction, and program management, the Culinary Job Training Program has changed the lives of over 1500 graduates. It is Marianne’s focus on change and self-empowerment of CJT students that has been the catalyst for the evolution these students have been able to make.
