On just the 3rd day, the trainees were already baking 600 rolls. Here, two of the trainees watch Chef Rick Billings mix and pour batter.

As our Executive Director, Brian MacNair, travels around Haiti to our various project sites, ThinkFoodGroup Chefs Rick Billings and Andrew Nelson have been busy training 4 bakers and 2 assistants from Zamni Beni Orphanage in their newly equipped baking facility. Although the trainees are between the ages of 14-21, after just a week of training they are already baking rolls, loaves, and cornbread by themselves. “The training was amazing. The class was so eager to learn and caught on quickly. I can’t wait to come back,” says Chef Rick Billings.
