How Training Helps
Improved skills in the kitchen and a better understanding of home hygiene and nutrition builds confidence among housekeepers and home cooks alike. Happy kitchens help nourish healthy families. Healthy food provides the energy for growing, learning, working and sharing those skills and knowledge with the community.
Three Good Spoons’ long-term goal is to deliver accredited training for domestic workers.
