Worth Our Weight Program & Restaurant

In conjunction with Myers Restaurant Supply, Tuxton China donated plates from our Alaska Collection to the Worth Our Weight Program & Restaurant located in Santa Rosa, CA on May 16th, 2013.

WOW apprentices are young people from 16-24 who have faced major challenges in their lives, including foster care, difficulties with the law, homelessness, and significant family disruption. They provide tuition-free culinary and food service training.

At WOW, apprentices receive tuition-free culinary and food service training during a program that initially lasts one year. Our program invites these young people into the greater world of food—sustainable farming, professional cooking, and access to high-quality food prepared by chefs and food service professionals—as well as provide them with the skills to prepare quality food for themselves. Apprentices who successfully complete one year’s training may be invited to stay for a second year of advanced training, including learning the role of sous-chef, line cook or manager.
