NBCC Street Food Challenge to benefit Youth Impact Jeunesse

MONCTON – What do you get when you combine eight teams of hospitality students with an international leader in the frozen food industry?

A week’s worth of delicious lunches for a good cause!

The NBCC/McCain Street Food Challenge is coming up, February 24-28 at the Moncton Campus. Students in the College’s Culinary Arts Management and Hotel and Restaurant Management programs will use test kitchen stations to replicate a street food market experience and serve as many people as possible, as quickly as possible. Lunch will be served to the public from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. each day during Street Food Challenge Week.

“The Street Food Challenge has become a much-anticipated event for foodies in the community,” said instructor Jason Blonde. “It’s also an excellent opportunity for our learners to apply their learning in a real-world working environment.”

This year, NBCC is pleased to welcome sponsor McCain Foodservice to the Street Food Challenge. Each Street Food team will select one of the company’s 150 products to feature on its menu for the week.

Proceeds from this year’s Street Food Challenge will be directed to Youth Impact Jeunesse, an organization that provides quality care and guidance to youth ages 10 to 24 who have social, emotional, and behavioural problems. Youth Impact Jeunesse empowers youth to make effective choices that give them enhanced control over their futures.
