A friend of mine is the Resettlement Director for the African Community Center in Denver.
In her role, she helps the refugees having come to Denver to seek refuge, find employment, secure housing, and more.
This event helps support ACC’s specific program of Commercial Food Safety and Service Training, in conjunction with the University of Denver’s Fritz Koebel School of Hospitality Management.
This special partnership recently won the Best Educational Innovation Award from Worldwide Hospitality.
It’s also shown an impressive 82% job placement rate for refugees being trained for work in the hospitality industry.
And really, how often do you get the chance to eat the food of a James Beard Award winner while supporting such a worthy cause?
