Micro-Blog from Nii Okine

On the beautiful fall morning of October 9, staff and students from The Chef’s Academy (TCA), participated in The Walk for Hope event sponsored by The Angus Barn. This annual event raises community awareness and monetary funding for treatment for mental illness, post traumatic stress disorder, Alzheimer’s disease, and dementia. The city of Raleigh was out in full force with 3,000 walkers and runners in attendance. TCA contributed by lending a helping hand as volunteers with some of the prep and kitchen work. Our team cooked around 5,000 hamburgers to help feed the hungry mass of people who came to support this cause. The Chef’s Academy is grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this annual event, and we hope to have an even larger school presence next year.
