Root Supporters:

“Our kitchen and venue doors will immediately be open for internships and real jobs for the Root students. Real-life, hands-on training is what we will offer, with as much guidance and support as each student deserves. Success will be hard-earned, which will translate into feelings of accomplishment and pride in a job well done. Opportunities and advancement can be vast in this industry, and Vinwood is committed to giving these kids our time and knowledge to soar.” 
- Rick Delisle, Owner/Partner, Vinwood Caterers
