Food Jobs Work - Phase 1 (Our House Campus)

This 8-week program consists of equal parts kitchen and classroom. In the kitchen, students learn knife skills, sanitation, workspace management, task and time management, and other skills critical to working in a professional kitchen. Students prepare items such as gumbo, macaroni and cheese, roasted chicken, steaks, cookies, biscuits, and much more. In the classroom, students review in detail the soft skills and ethics needed to be successful in work and in life, including responsibility, leadership, conflict resolution and communication skills. Graduates of the program receive 6 hours of articulated credit at University of Arkansas - Pulaski Technical College's Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management Institute in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
