During the pandemic. We know that there are regulations with regard to eating at a hotel while some of the requirements have been relaxed. The reality is is that we all want to make sure that we're eating our food in a safe environment and that the people that are serving our food Is well versed in the requirements that are exposed by the Centers for Disease Control, as well as the state of Illinois in the city of Chicago, joining me right now to talk About a unique program that is designed to train Food Service and restaurant workers is the owner of Rome's joy catering, as well as peaches restaurant on 47th Street and a culinary school. Call me Cyn. Plus, and that is my good friend. Cliff Rome. Cliff. How are you doing this morning? Great. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much for having me It's a pleasure, And the unique thing about this is that we always try to give our listen. There's information in terms of news that they can use, and and I was just an almost flabbergasted by this training that you're offering free of charge. Two restaurant workers to train them in howto properly serve food and also not only protect themselves, but protect patrons of restaurants. Talk to me about it. Oh, absolutely so missing class Chicago's organization and we started a few years ago. Out of the just A plain, Neto have better trained individuals of culinary hospitality field. So for us over at Rome Street Cos we've been doing this probably says our company's inception, but we didn't formally have a program where we would take an individual's we We're what you call, you know. Doing the training on site. Just to make sure that we had a better Populace, people who'll be able to just give better service, right? And so must we understood that there was overwhelming demand. I just you know, because all the time when we go to the things we just think you're the only person and then once we started to talk to the other Restaurant tours or people just industry why we realized that? Hey, wait a minute. There is no need to be able to do something to offer it. And there's a lot of culinary programs. A lot of talent for Graham's out there. But the uniqueness to us is that we're located in the historic bronze milk. And at the end of the day, you know, I look around at people in the community and these are folks who not only live here, but they want to be active participants. Buyable programs to help themselves so out of that reason plus is born. It's an opportunity for individual going to a hospitality and learn it from the bottom of literally. I'm an entrepreneur started off. In the kitchen is a long time ago, but I started off with a dishwasher, right? Yeah, and what I understood is that during that era there were individuals that you would huge study. Right, And there was an opportunity for you to grow in that in that, um, throughout their footprint, and so we wanted to do is really mimic that and so we've had a great opportunity. Have partners awesome partners that we work with. On the actually help us with the funding for, for example. We work in partnership with the Chicago Cook Workforce Partnership, and that's an organization in the city of Chicago. That combined federal doing profit resource is pretty much brought in the reach of impact work. Workforce development for employers as well as at the bottom at the end of the day, Really, the other ones who fund programs like this? And give us an opportunity to be able to write our own narrative in terms of the special are areas of training that we need to really focus on now. The incredible thing here is that you are actually offering free of charge hospitality training. To a cohort of about 10 people for a four week period. Yeah, Yeah, It's not nothing. You know, Here's the thing about training. It crossed my mind. Yes, thing about training is that everyone needs us even this cold involved. Oh, absolutely. And now now that we're dealing with what we're dealing with a Z started, think about Kobe right over 90. Part of our partnership is a three way partnership because we work with the city of Chicago. And the idea is to be able to take those new guidelines and make them applicable to the training that we have it. So you kind of merging the two. The greatest thing about food service is that A lion's share of all the requirements. We is industry have already been here, too. Right? So you've been doing those things. The other part is just making sure that you were wearing your Matthew constantly constantly changing gloves and watch your hands. Creating good housekeeping having good habits. You know, it's so part of the training, which a lot of time small businesses number for you because you're small business already. And it's almost impossible to operate your business and turn at the same time, and it's too costly. So for us, we understand that there is an overwhelming need and right now we're trying to do is make sure that we could focus on the fundamentals. Because everyone would benefit from having individual That's better train. You named your business in your business motto. If you have one more person you can always ask for 10. But generally you get one and one is that I would think that the idea of being there is that that one Khun teach others. So that becomes exponential growth there without having to you know, Of course, we're dealing with a limited cohort in terms of 10 individuals, But those 10 then become trained and from what I understand, also certified nationally. Yes. So part of our curriculum is that we partnered with the Illinois Restaurant Association and we have a curriculum Corporal start. And it is offered by the National Restaurant Association in their educational founders. So for us, it's not like you just got a certificate from chef Rome at the party the ball now. What happens if you get a nationally sort of fire certificate, So we take you through sanitation and we take you through these new dime eyes in our industry. We teaching fundamentals No one's guaranteeing that you're going to come out and be a rock star shot. What we are saying is that now you have skills that are transferrable still says that you could make applicable Hopefully you can you stay within the industry, but if you don't So same ruse of missing class, which is all things in order just becomes arm all Greek to Indio kid, and now you become a better contribute to society.

"Dr Allison are doing a commissioner of the Chicago Department of Public Health Wealth on W G. N Thank you taking time. I know you've got a very busy day going on. No problem. Thanks for having me at the press conference earlier today with the mayor talking about contact tracing, Can you give us the information we need on that. Short, but we were really excited to announce today in partnership with Chicago Cook Workforce Partnership, 31 Community based organization from Ah high economic hardship areas in Chicago that will be hiring Contact Tracers problem Chicago and specifically working to push jobs into these areas where they're most needed its earnings. You learn program. People are not required to have any particular training in contact everything, but it's really a goal to build up some capacity in community and make our current contact tracing program even stronger, So it was an exciting day. How does it work? How does this contact missing work? Yeah, but the way it works, But every single case of covert 19 that we were thieves in Chicago residents right now and moving forward. No matter where folks live in the city, we do sleep investigation, contact everything we reach out. We have a conversation with people get information and then make sure that we're getting them the resources that they need and then in a way that protect their privacy were able to share with others. If there I think they need to do like, get tested, and basically what this will help us do it. Move some of that off of the Chicago Department of Public Health and really into community, and so it's a way for us to think long term Beyond Cove. It really build up some opportunity for folks to be a really a contact tracing corps public health voices in in neighborhood on and importantly, bill jobs at the time. I believe we have a question. Go ahead. Dr Already. This is Kim Gordon in the newsroom of us just switch subjects on you for just a second. You guys released a new study today talking about youth cigarette use in Chicago, and it appears Cigarette use is down. But Vaping is still on the rise is that I mean, obviously, that's not surprising, but in a way, it is surprising because there's been so much talk about the dangers of Vaping and the Vaping disease. Yes, That's right. So, yes, And I think for bringing that up. Certainly we have been encouraged. I think that we have been a leader in a lot of ways here in Chicago around really used protection related to tobacco on DH, But the problem is, Vaping came right in and took over. Ah, lot of that progress that we'd need generally against you. You smoking you tobacco use. So you know, just earlier this week that he council made the decision to not allow flavored Vaping products. We were Happy to see that we're hoping to double down on that even more and think about other flavored product that you know, including in combustible that really appealed to you. We don't want to get another generation addicted to nicotine if we can help it. And the other thing that was surprising to me was the use among young black males. You bet, right? So unfortunately, we already know that two years of the life expectancy gap the racial life ick Second gap in Chicago, where White Chicagoland live almost nine years longer than black Chicago and two years of that gap can be linked to tackle you. And so we also know that there's been a long history, unfortunately of flavor targeting especially black Americans, particularly with menthol. But even with other flavours and the fact that we are now seeing an increase in terms of smoking in young black men is not something that we want to see in. One of the reasons why we really want to take comprehensively about keeping flavors broadly away from younger people, which is, you know, we know that flavors are one of the big things that get started. Is it hard? Oh, sorry, John, go. No, go ahead. I was just going to say that hard for you to get the message out now to these kids since they're not in school, So how do you you know, touch them that this is not what they shouldn't. Yeah, it's far. You know, I think so Much of this is frankly what they see their peers doing and even what they see adults doing some of the major progress that we've made, I think is, you know a number of years ago here In Chicago, For example, we said you can't fell flavored products within 500 Ft. Of high school period, right. Like you can't sell menthol cigarette. She can't spell flavored Vaping products. You can't sell flavors that kind of thing really getting it potentially The further away, making it harder for kids to access some of this and then it's just changing norms. I think where people start to understand the danger that do calm with Vaping as well on DH kid, you know, we're able to hopefully turn that around in the future we can put out and we will continue to put out messaging around the dangers of Ah, particularly youth smoking in Vaping, But we don't just do that through school, so he gives us one fewer place to do it there, but Broadly, I think more just thinking about all the different lovers that we have to keep this left likely for kids to initiate use of these products with important Yeah, I remember when the flavored tobacco came out. The industry was accused of Specifically doing that to try to attract a youth consumer. Yeah, Yeah, well, that's what we've seen. You've got product there. There, you know, Bubble gum and gummy. They're like, who do you think those products are aimed at? Right? But we really think that all flavored products broadly this is what brings kid then on DH. We really You know, California just the other week. They actually outlawed all flavors in all tobacco products, period combustible taping the whole thing. The feeling we're being, really, you know, cities and states pushing back against the tobacco industry on DH, So I really you know, we've taken some steps here. I'm really hopeful that we'll continue to get even more serious and get back out in front here way really work on that. You know, it's one of the main things that kill people. The preventable number one leading preventable cause of death and disability here in Chicago and around the U. S. Andi. I know people, you know, use it for stress relief. They use it because socially. Historically, you know, it's been something that that that reviews, but it's dangerous and it killed people and it and it doesn't kill people equally. So it's a major conversation. And I encourage people to check out the new information online. If you want to see more decals, uh, the contact tracing court. We started a few minutes ago. You are looking for to fill 400 jobs if I get that, correct, yeah, even more. It's going to be closer to 500. By the time you include both the contractor a third hand, the supervisor's come and then there's even another 100 more that will be doing some of the resource coordination. I want to be clear that they're going to be hired by the community based organizations, 31 community based organizations. Are repeating funding and then in turn will be doing the training.
