US Foods Scholars program
Since 2017, the US Foods® Scholars program has awarded financial support and professional development to students pursuing careers in the culinary arts, restaurant and hospitality industries.
Along with our partners – Careers through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP) and Scholarship America – we identify deserving candidates who require additional resources to continue their culinary or hospitality journey.
Each student named a US Foods Scholar receives a $20,000 scholarship to support their education, as well as exclusive opportunities to engage with and learn from US Foods Chefs and professionals.
In inspiring the next generation of culinary talent to reach their full potential, US Foods Scholars helps fulfill the promises of our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility, promoting diversity and inclusion in the foodservice industry, while helping to fill the overarching labor shortage impacting us all.
Currently, US Foods Scholars is recruiting and supporting students in nine markets: Atlanta, Arizona, Austin, Birmingham, Chicago, Daytona Beach, New York City, Portland and Raleigh.
Our US Foods Scholars have gained industry experience participating in US Foods Scoop™ product launches, customer visits, in-kitchen demo days with US Foods Chefs and other exclusive professional development opportunities.
