CulinaryCorps invites eligible culinary students and professionals to join our volunteer outreach trips to New Orleans. We are now recruiting for two fall trips:
September 14-21, 2007
November 30 – December 7, 2007
Each trip will be composed of fifteen culinary students/professionals from around the nation that are committed to volunteering their time and kitchen skills to food-related community projects within New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. They will also have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the vital culinary culture of the region during tastings, lectures and tours.
This is a great way to transform your passion for food into an opportunity to provide support and solidarity to New Orleans rebuilding efforts. We promise it’ll be the hardest week you’ll ever savor. Click “continue” for details…
