Considerate Café will open on Friday, September 22, 2017, for the 2017-18 school year.  The "Specials of the Week" for opening week will be BLT panini or Chicken Salad panini with choice of soup or salad.  The bread is freshly baked and the vegetables are farm fresh and organic from the Hamilton Career Center "Learning to Grow" Greenhouse, located directly behind HCC.

"The students have been training hard," said Danielle Mathieu from HCC.  "They have been practicing customer service skills, preparing foods, and learning about DHEC regulations.  They are looking forward to serving the community!"

The café will open on Fridays from 11:00 am until 1:30 pm and will follow the School District of Oconee County academic calendar.  The meals cost $8.00 each and include entreé, choice of side, drink and taxes.  

The Café provides students in the STARS program at Hamilton Career Center an opportunity to have paid, on-campus jobs while adding real work experience to their resumes, thus improving their employability.  Students also work on other curriculum objectives, including independent living skills and social skills.

The Considerate Café is located in the Transition Building at the Fred P. Hamilton Career Center on 100 Vocational Drive in Seneca.  For questions, call Danielle Mathieu at 864-886-4425, extension 5824.
