Hospitality and Food Production

  • An instructional program in foods, nutrition, hospitality, and related services. The Hospitality and Food Production program at Pueblo Central High School is a 4 year program where students can complete the program with food certifications from ProStart, ServSafe and concurrent enrollment credits from PCC. Students can then continue on to Pueblo Community College and earn a 2 year degree. Students can begin the program by taking Culinary Essentials, where students learn culinary skills and basic sanitation. Their second year is in the Catering course. During their second year students get real life hands on catering experience. The students will work for and plan events for At the Cat Rock Cafe and the Cat Stop Shop, a work based experience for the students. The third and fourth years the students will take either Pro Start 1 or 2 depending which is offered during that year. Along with the Pro Start course they have the opportunity to host events at the Cat Rock Cafe. We have partnerships throughout the community where students can work and many community members are guest speakers as well as made donations to our program.
