IFF Gives Back to our Future Chefs

We are really proud to announce that IFF is supporting future chefs through its scholarship funds at both the Culinary Institute of America and Johnson & Wales University.  Members of the CulinEssence Team are graduates of these great schools, we get many of our interns from them, and we do all we can to support the continuing development of students of the culinary arts. 

In addition, we're thrilled to announce that we are continuing our support of CulinaryCorps®.  Founded in 2006 by Christine Carroll, CulinaryCorps Inc. is the nation’s first service organization designed specifically for culinary professionals.  The group enables chefs, cooks, food educators, and culinary students to volunteer their professional skills and tackle some of America’s most critical food challenges: emergency hunger relief, cooking and nutrition education, healthy food access, childhood wellness, and culinary heritage preservation.  Since IFF's philanthropic mission is in support of children's education, we have been supporting the areas specific to cooking and nutrition education for kids. 

We're proud to work for an organization with an eye to the future and its heart in the right place.  We remember how hard we worked in school and how tough it was for some of us and our friends financially.  Giving to these organizations supports our future chefs and gives something special to kids that can never be taken away - the gift of cooking.
