CITY OF SAN FERNANDO -- Governor Lilia Pineda on Tuesday led the opening of the Capitol Culinary facility here that aims to promote Kapampangan culinary arts and food.

The dry run of the culinary operations was personally arranged and monitored by the governor.

Provincial Public Employment Service Officer Luningning Vergara said that Governor Pineda wanted to closely watch the operations of the Capitol Culinary facility to make sure it serves accessible, safe, clean and delicious Kapampangan meals at a low cost.

Vergara also said that the Capitol will also conduct trainings for target beneficiaries who shall serve as cooks for the culinary facility. The beneficiaries will also be given start-up capital to start small businesses upon finishing the training course.

"Anyone can be a part of the training program specially families of OFWs," Vergara said.

Aside from this, the Capitol is also planning to conduct pastry making seminars and trainings by the end of the year in time for the holiday season.

The facility will soon be fully operational upon the completion and acquisition of other equipment for the culinary sections.
