It’s about health: Busting myths about being a Food Service Worker

When you hear the words “Food Service Worker,” what are you thinking of? A burger-flipper? A waiter? In fact, it doesn’t mean what you think it does. Centennial College’s Food Service Worker program is taught at the School of Community and Health studies because it’s actually a program about health. Instead of becoming part of a restaurant, you’re studying to become a part of a health care team that provides the nutritional needs of patients. It’s a certificate program that runs for only a single semester, meaning it provides a quick way to enter the workforce and participate in a meaningful career.

Naturally, Buzzfeed is a prime, prominent example of lifestyle media, and a perfect example of how it’s changing the way we see the world, and why joining it is important.
