Basic Food Service

Do you enjoy cooking, or have you been told that you're a good cook?

Students enrolled in this program are ready for entry-level positions in the Food Service and Lodging Industries through a combination of classroom instruction and hands-on experience. With the skills that students obtain they are able to work in restaurants, hotels, nursing homes, hospitals, school cafeterias, theme parks, sport venues, food production plants, and private residences.

The BFS Program concentrates on food production and hospitality fundamentals. Students are trained in the safe use of equipment, kitchen/food safety and sanitation procedures, accurate measuring of ingredients and knife cutting techniques. Students explore the Hospitality Industry which includes Food and Beverage, Lodging, Recreation, and Travel and Tourism. In lab, they prepare a wide variety of recipes including soups, salads, fruit, vegetable, meat dishes, breads and desserts, which are made from scratch on a weekly basis. Another part of lab involves caring for uniforms/linens and developing laundry room skills, practicing daily cleaning procedures and the safe use of housekeeping chemicals. They also learn how to set up the cafeteria for banquets. During the second semester, students have an opportunity to acquire on-the-job training in the Hospitality Industry at Traditions at Bristol Village.

All students are members of a student organization called Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA). As members, they achieve leadership and career developmental skills by participating in the local FCCLA Career Development Events in the spring. Students take part in community service projects such as making Jingle Bell Parade Luminaries, and Christmas Caroling at area nursing facilities. They also have an opportunity to attend the over- night trip to the FCCLA State Leadership Conference in Columbus.
