The Community Culinary School of Northwestern Connecticut will occupy the kitchen and a classroom at the newly opened John Pettibone Community Center in New Milford. A Memorandum of Understanding was unanimously agreed to by the Town Council this week.
The lease is for 15 years.
New Milford officials say the Community Center offers a large kitchen for the School to better train its students and provide real world experience as a professional chef.
Food produced in the classes is distributed to the hungry in the community via the New Milford Food Bank. The Food Bank will also be located at the Community Center and serves up to 150 households weekly.
