In 2017, Filet of Soul partnered with the Melton Center and the Chester County Workforce Development Board to establish the FOSCI as a Melton Center Program.

This free 8-week program was established to mentor and train economically disadvantaged youth, ages 16 to 24, in culinary arts and the hospitality industry, while also offering paid work experience opportunities and employment.

We are targeting economically disadvantaged young people in the West Chester borough with a specific focus on the census tract immediately surrounding the Charles A. Melton Center.
