Catholic Charities Opportunity Kitchen Focus of "Faith Alive"

Catholic Charities Diocese of Toledo's "Faith Alive" program airs weekly on Tuesdays at 4 p.m. and is re-broadcast at 3 p.m. on Saturdays on Annunciation Radio.

On our latest January 3rd "Faith Alive" program, Host Rodney Schuster, Executive Director of Catholic Charities Diocese of Toledo, is joined by Byron Wynn, Catholic Charities Volunteer Coordinator, the brainchild of Catholic Charities Opportunity Kitchen, and Chef Saundra Irvine, who heads up instruction of Opportunity Kitchen classes. 

Opportunity Kitchen is an intense, fast-paced, 10-week compassionate culinary "boot-camp" providing a skills-driven immersion into the commercial food service industry and transformational life skills for any workforce. The goal is to attain employment, build confidence, self respect, and the dignity and value of each participant. Attendees learn best practices from leaders in the food service industry and are tested and attain Health Department ServSafe certification.

The hour-long program airs weekly on Tuesdays at 4 p.m. and is re-broadcast at 3 p.m. on Saturdays. Tune in to WNOC 89.7 FM Toledo / Bowling Green, WHRQ 88.1 FM Sandusky / Port Clinton, WFOT 89.5 FM Mansfield / Lexington, WSHB 90.9 FM Willard, and WRRO 89.9 FM in Bryan are Northwest and North Central Ohio's Catholic Radio Stations.
