Please consider a gift to the Fran Folsom Culinary Arts Scholarship.
The scholarship is funded solely by the proceeds of the dinner. Without your help, we will not be able to fund the aspiring chefs and restaurant owners who are transforming this region, one bite at a time.
Culinary Arts at PPCC
All proceeds from the Fran Folsom Culinary Arts Scholarship Dinner fund scholarships for students in their final year of the Culinary Arts degree programs at PPCC. These programs achieve a 95% job placement rate after graduation. The chefs you would have been introduced to at the dinner will be headlining in kitchens across the region.
Our goal is to support at least 6 chef students with a scholarship of $3,000 each this year.
The PPCC Culinary Arts Program is the largest of its kind in the community. It serves more than 350 students and graduated more than 100 students this past year. The program received an Exemplary Status by the American Culinary Federation Education Foundation Accreditation Committee and has a 95-percent job placement rate.
