Bites Blog: “Early-Bird Tickets on Sale Now for Tennessee Flavors”
March 8 is the date for this year’s Tennessee Flavors event at the main campus of Nashville State Community College at 120 White Bridge Road. The tasting event will feature more than 75 local restaurants and food and beverage artisans as part of a fundraiser for the Nashville State Community College Foundation.
According to the foundation’s website, it “works to expand access to higher education and further regional workforce and economic development.”
“By raising funds for scholarships, program and infrastructure improvements, and grants for faculty and staff that enhance student learning opportunities,” it adds, “the foundation strives to ensure that resources are available to support the homegrown talent that Nashville State produces for our local workforce.” Considering the shortage of culinary workers that local restaurants are dealing with, this is an important undertaking for the NSCC’s culinary arts program.
