Executive Director of the non-profit Food Education Fund that supports culinary-focused high school programs, Eliza Loehr, shares stories of internships, externships and networking opportunities, in addition to discussing the implications of systematic racism on educational institutions. And star student Gabby Womack tells of her growing belief in herself, a confidence gained through her passion and connection to cooking at FFHS.
