Local immigrants in Winnipeg are learning to sautée their way to employment thanks to a free food handlers’ course offered by Food Matters Manitoba.

The program, which launched in July and runs once a month, has seen about 75 participants so far and a wait list much longer, according to program coordinator Amy Henderson, who’s looking to expand.
