About our organization

Within the Kanteen25 BV community, we will establish a training school Stichting Cooks25, to offer free skills training in cooking, kitchen preparation, and general catering opportunities to the unemployed to help them progress into employment.  We will collaborate with the local municipality and other partners to support and improve employment possibilities in the area.

The objectives of the Stichting are to foster a friendly, learning and work environment to grow ideas and networks for the common good.

Remuneration Policy

All Board members volunteer their time and do not receive any remuneration.  All Board members are entitled to reimbursement of reasonable expenses in line with their attendance at meetings.

Staff employed to manage and work for Stichting Cooks25 will be paid according to local market rates and in accordance with statutory requirements.  Salaries will be reviewed annually.
