Charleston Wine + Food

One80 Place Training

In order to create positive economic impact for our local food + beverage community, Charleston Wine + Food plans to specifically align its support to One80 Place Training and its Food Rescue Program. This program helps to combat the current staffing shortage in our culinary + hospitality community.


One80 Place Training is a 5 week culinary crash course that helps enrollees acquire skills to help them find stable, gainful employment. A learned skill increases the chance for steady employment and helps people maintain their housing.

about the program

One80 Place Training is comprised of guest chef lecturers who come to teach culinary skills, an externship with a local restaurant and then job placement. Our annual festival serves as a paid externship opportunity for all current enrollees and past graduates. We place One80 Place Training students with local chefs to act as support during the festival. We have seen a 95% hire rate from this direct placement.
