Chefs and Caterers

Need students to work your next event? Rancho Cielo’s Drummond Culinary Academy has enthusiastic students to fit your needs for prep, service, bussing, action stations, or plate-up for that party of 500. It’s an opportunity for our students to get a taste for the real deal, working for the pros in our local hospitality industry, a preview of their first job after graduation. You can be the one to make a difference in the lives of our youth. Please contact Chef Crystal Birkemeier or Program Manager Mark Bruszer for details and they can match a student to your needs.

We have a standard financial arrangement that we make with chefs and caterers, as we do pay the students a stipend for this work. We make an effort to ensure they are not taken advantage of; we know you will support this arrangement.
