10 inmates had the rare opportunity to cook for their family members, during the Yellow Ribbon Tribute of Love ‘Mother’s Day Luncheon’.

This was made possible, only through the Yellow Ribbon Culinary Programme, which was started in 2009. 

The Yellow Ribbon Culinary Programme seeks to provide their inmate participants with culinary skills, and opportunities for a continual education through a certified course.

Two successful runs of Certificate in Basic Culinary Skills Course were conducted in the last two years, through collaboration between the Singapore Hotel Association Training and Education Centre (SHATEC) and Yellow Ribbon Culinary Programme.

What made the Yellow Ribbon Culinary Programme different from other culinary programmes however, was that the 46 participants contested in a culinary competition at the culmination of the programme, for a chance to cook their winning 3-course lunch for their family members.

The judges were all seasoned and high-profile chefs, and the competition was tough.

But yet the inmates all persevered for a chance to cook for their loved ones, as a tribute of love.

To find out what challenges the 46 inmate participants faced, and how the Luncheon went, do check out the Home Team Volunteers very first e-Newsletter!
