Stay Hungry: Increasing Diversity with Food & Hip Hop

Mar 13, 2017

12:30pm – 1:30pm CT

While ethnic minority enrollment in culinary schools has increased slowly, black chefs are still not highly represented in high-level positions or in mainstream restaurants. Both hip-hop and food have a strong presence within a range of communities and subcultures across America. Hip-hop serves as a tool of familiarity when introducing kids, particularly those in inner city neighborhoods to the possibilities of the culinary arts world and food in general. With this in mind, we invite you to join us as we explore the results when STAY HUNGRY fused hip-hop and food together.
