 NC K-12 Culinary Institute Workshop

We are excited about our upcoming NC K-12 Culinary Institute workshops during summer 2016. The workshops will be scheduled at a variety of locations over the state and will be available to school nutrition managers and/or training managers who will “teach it forward” using information and materials obtained during the instruction. If you would like to have one or more of your schools considered for hosting a workshop, please complete the Culinary Institute Site Application and return to susan.thompson@dpi.nc.gov by December 15, 2015. If you are recommending more than one site, please complete a separate form for each. We will review all applications and select those that seem best suited to location and facility/equipment availability.

Thank you very much for your consideration and potential assistance of this learning opportunity!
