Whole Foods and La Cocina Establish Partnership

Whole Foods Market has signed an agreement with La Cocina to offer our graduate students full-time employment after their completion of a one-month internship at a Whole Foods location. Those granted the opportunity will apply their newly acquired skills in the culinary arts and English to continue their work towards a better future for themselves and their communities.

“Our Team Members truly are our ‘secret sauce’ when it comes to Whole Foods Market. We’re always on the lookout for the next great Team Member – someone who is passionate about food and making a difference in the world. Having them come from La Cocina is a great way to do just that.”

– ┬áJane Mueller, Executive Coordinator of Operations for Whole Foods Market Mid-Atlantic region

La Cocina VA currently has three graduates working in Whole Foods locations. Stay tuned for updates on their progress on Facebook and Twitter!
