USF Visits Vets2Success

Vets2Success, Inc. is a local community-based nonprofit organization (501c3) that focuses primarily on the at-risk, homeless, and displaced local Veteran population and their families. Vets2Success aims to reintegrate Veterans back into the community through innovative workforce programs. These trainings were developed to help participants find their individual identity through food, brew, and agricultural programs. To learn more about their Vet2Chef program and potential evaluation opportunities, Drs. Christina Dillahunt-Aspillaga and Scott Young went on a site visit to one of their classes held at USF's Culinary Innovation Lab in Lakewood Ranch. To their surprise, Drs. Dillahunt-Aspillaga and Young were fully engaged in the program and made chocolate eclairs from scratch while talking shop. It was quite an interesting day outside the office!
