I agree with K. Simmons. Try and volunteer for a company that will allow you access to information in spurts. There's nothing wrong with learning how to say, stock the products needed in a business like this. You get a chance to learn products and protocol. Not all items can rest at any given temperature so knowing what should go where should jog your curiosity to learn more and any employer should be happy to mentor that

Good Luck
