IFWTWA Announces 2019 Hospitality Scholarship Award

Chesapeake Culinary Center in Denton, Maryland wins IFWTWA's 2019 Hospitality Scholarship Award. As part of Caroline Culinary Arts, this organization provides high school students and community members an introduction to the foodservice and hospitality industry in preparation for future culinary careers. 

The program targets displaced youth between the ages of 16 and 21 but is open to all adults seeking a career in the hospitality industry, giving them valuable job skill for future success.

Students at the Center develop and demonstrate skills in safe and sanitary food handling and preparation techniques and learn to prepare a variety of foods. They develop a broad understanding of the types of career options available in the foodservice and hospitality industry and have the opportunity to earn the ServSafe Credential. The educators administering the program hope this model can be eventually be adopted throughout the state of Maryland and the region. The institution has been sent a $1000 scholarship award to be given out to a deserving student.
