The support and sponsorship from the industry are a key component to C-CAP’s success. Since 1990, industry sponsors and partners have provided C-CAP with necessary equipment and ingredients for under-stocked and under-equipped classrooms and monetary donations to support programs that educate and guide underserved high school students toward a bright future in the culinary arts.
For the third year in a row, Tuxton China, a leading tabletop supplier to the foodservice industry, will be donating a percentage of the total sales from the month of September in support of C-CAP. In addition, they will again donate plates with the C-CAP logo to be used by students competing in the C-CAP Cooking Competition for Scholarships at all locations across the country.
“All of us at Tuxton China are very excited to continue our association with C-CAP. C-CAP is a charitable organization we can partner and grow with that has a direct impact on the industry we are a part of. This partnership allows us to give back and help these kids become a valued part of our wonderful industry,” says Bill Burden, President of Tuxton China.
“At Tuxton, giving back is an important part of our company’s core values and our continuing partnership with the Careers through Culinary Arts Program gives us the opportunity to help disadvantaged high school students become part of our industry, says Vice President of Business Development Jennifer Rolander. “Our continued support of this organization as one of our “Tuxton Cares” partners is a priority for us, and we are looking forward to providing funds for scholarships and their competition plates for years to come!”
“We encourage everyone in the industry to support Tuxton by purchasing products in September. You will be helping us provide underserved high school students with culinary education and career-readiness skills for success,” says C-CAP President Karen Brosius.
