Zaman International, a humanitarian organization that provides essential needs and job skills training for severely impoverished women with dependents, unveiled its new culinary arts training center and workplace development program yesterday at its Hope For Humanity Center in Inkster. In lieu of a ribbon cutting, local dignitaries, donors and community partners took part in a bread-cutting ceremony to officially open the new state-of-the-art kitchen where Zaman’s Culinary Arts Training Program will be offered beginning in January. Zaman will also use the kitchen to offer community-focused cooking classes and to prepare meals for its Mobile Hot Food Pantry, which delivers nightly meals to clients with transportation challenges. Among those in attendance at the opening event were Wayne County Executive Warren Evans, Inkster Mayor Byron Nolen, Inkster City Councilmember Connie R. Mitchell, Michigan State Representative Jewell Jones, Judge David Turfe of 20th District Court in Dearborn Heights, and Jean Overman, pastor of Christ Temple City of Refuge in Inkster and director of Operation Refuge.
