The Fresno County Office of Education (FCOE) is launching its newest program for Adult Transition Program students, Kids Café, Monday.
The new café, located at 2019 Mariposa Mall in Fresno, is both a full-service restaurant for the public and a classroom for adult special education students to learn vocational and social skills.
Students who serve as baristas, deli chefs and cashiers, learn valuable hands-on skills while under the direct supervision of instructors at the Kids Café. Menu items students will prepare include espresso drinks, smoothies, paninis, sandwich wraps, soups and salads.
A ribbon cutting ceremony for the café begins at 10 a.m. and the café will be open for business starting at 11 a.m. Regular café hours are Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
