DENVER -- A unique culinary program is helping people overcome poverty and support themselves with new careers in the food industry.

Work Options for Women operates the cafeteria in Denver Human Services, but the people behind the food and the service are also learning new career skills without paying tuition.

The life-changing culinary program is made possible thanks to the help of many donors.

On May 2, Work Options for Women will hold an annual fundraiser, Women Cook!, with the help of some of Denver's best female chefs.
