Read the passage, and then answer the questions below. Each question is worth 5 points.

Taste of Success
Actions speak louder than words. That is what English chef Jamie Oliver believes. Talking about how to make fine food was not enough. He wanted to open a restaurant. Saying that all young people can succeed was not enough, either. He wanted to give them a way to do it.

Oliver named his restaurant Fifteen for the 15 young people from the streets who would work there. The restaurant became a kind of school. The chef taught his "students" all about fine food. He took them on field trips to buy fresh food. Then he showed how to cook it and how to serve it.

The young chefs-in-training had not had easy lives. Some were without families or homes. Others fought drug problems. Many of them had lost hope. Oliver wanted to change that. His goals were to inspire the young people with food and to give them the skills they needed to succeed.
