A CIA Student-Run Charity Dining Event
Saturday, July 22, 2023 | 4 p.m.
The Culinary Institute of America’s senior class presents Apotheca, An Everlasting Bloom, a student planned, organized, and operated charity event. Embark on an evening filled with lush greenery, revitalizing food, and live entertainment. Here you will get the chance to learn about the many medicinal aspects of food and drink while embracing the beauty of nature. Wander the garden during cocktail hour, followed by a nourishing six-course meal in Farquharson Hall.
This event will benefit the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley, whose mission is to alleviate hunger and prevent food waste in the Hudson Valley. The organization distributes donated food to six different counties in the area and, in 2018 alone, donated 15 million pounds of food to people in need.
In addition to the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley, a portion of the event proceeds will benefit the Love for Lade Perry Memorial Scholarship, in honor of Omolade “Lade,” Perry, a 16-year U.S. Navy veteran, and student in the CIA’s bachelor’s degree program, who passed away in March of 2022.
