The Covid-19 Pandemic
170,286 meals have been provided
In partnership with Woolworths -- and joined by their food suppliers, as well as many ICT's longtime friends and contributors -- our attention during this crisis has turned to supplying meals to the neediest Cape Town communities.
We are still working daily to assist our graduates to regain employment in South Africa's decimated tourism industry.
While much of our normal work is on hold for now, you can be certain that we continue to carry out our mission of "Improving Lives Through Cooking" in all ways possible.
Please go to our Facebook page to see the many photos and videos of our recent feeding initiative.
Improving Lives Through Cooking
All Classes Are Currently Suspended
Infinity Culinary Training serves disadvantaged young South African women and men in urgent need of employment. We provide students with the professional cooking skills and essential life skills necessary to gain immediate employment within the hospitality industry.
Within three months, our students become able to support their children and families -- and to begin the journey from poverty to long-term growth and self-reliance.

Countdown to Our 36th Class Graduation
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all classes have been suspended until further notice.
If you submitted an application for Class 37, and if you received a phone call to attend the interviews, you should have also received a call informing you that the interviews were cancelled.
Do not submit new application forms. You will be among the first called for an interview once classes resume.
No one should submit application forms until such time as it is announced here and on our Facebook page that classes are resuming.
It is our greatest hope that everyone takes all warnings and advisories seriously and follows all the official recommendations for proper cautionary measures (hand-washing, sanitizing, social distancing, etc.). That is the quickest way to end this crisis.
While Infinity Culinary Training considers this crisis with the greatest urgency, we counsel everyone not to panic. You must not lose hope. This virus will be defeated if everyone does their part and follows all measures for safety.
Infinity Culinary Training will resume classes as soon as it is permitted and safe to do so.
