Since 2017, the US Foods® Scholars program has awarded financial support and professional development to students pursuing careers in the culinary arts and restaurant industry. Along with our partners – Careers through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP) and Scholarship America – we identify deserving students who require additional resources to continue your culinary journey.
Along with inspiring students to reach their full potential, US Foods Scholars help us fulfill the promises of our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility, helping to promote diversity and inclusion in the foodservice industry, while helping to fill the overarching labor shortage impacting us all.
Currently, there are active programs recruiting and promoting students in nine cities: Atlanta, Arizona, Austin, Birmingham, Chicago, Daytona Beach, New York City, Portland and Raleigh.
