Goals of the Food Service Program

    Joe Reilly Valley Collaborative houses an eat-in or takeout restaurant in which our students work. Joe's Bistro is a fully operational café that is open to the public and provides students with an opportunity to gain marketable experience in culinary arts and customer service.

    Experienced culinary staff supervises our students in the preparation, serving, sale, and cleanup involved in running a restaurant. Students are cross-trained in a variety of stations and have the opportunity to cater in the community in addition to serving patrons in our on-site café.
