ABOUT OUR PROGRAM
La Brigade student restaurant is staffed by students enrolled in the Food and Restaurant Management class at York High School.
Students learn about and rotate through the different positions needed to staff the restaurant. Through regular private and open luncheon functions students gain experience prepping for and hosting large events.
Students also learn and apply sanitation procedures and have the opportunity to receive their sanitation managers certification through semester 1 coursework.
We're so excited to be back to in person learning this year!
Students were welcomed back on August 18th, and will begin training in foodservice sanitation and restaurant operations as the year gets under way.
We anticipate offering a variety of La Brigade services including To go meals and meal kits, catering, bakery items and more! Operations will remain flexible as we explore the extent to which we can offer in person dining. Please check back in September for updated event information.
We will continue to adapt and adhere to emerging guidance and requirements for schools and restaurants issued by the Illinois Department of Public Health.
