SFCC partners with World Central Kitchen to provide meals
SFCC, World Central Kitchen and SFCC Foundation have partnered to feed students and their families, as well as local communities.
Read the full press release about this massive effort!
The partnership was developed by Robert Egger, a Cerrillos resident, who is serving as a food security adviser to Santa Fe Mayor Alan Webber. He is a longtime friend and colleague of Chef Andrés, as well as a founding Board member of World Central Kitchen.
A big shout out to thank Chef Jerry Dakan, the Culinary Arts faculty and students who are producing the meals. Our Culinary Arts program students who had not been able to complete the hands-on components of their classes will earn credit hours toward their Culinary Arts certificates and associate degrees.
Kudos to all helping to make this happen – Dean Camilla Bustamante, Dean Jenny Landen, Campus Safety and Security and so many volunteers.
