Careers through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP) is a non-profit that works with culinary high school vocational students in the Philadelphia region. We provide job training, scholarships, career and college advising, and exposure to all aspects of the culinary industry to a population that desperately needs support and guidance. That kind of in-depth programming costs money, which is why we need your help.
IGNITE… Firing Up Tomorrow’s Chefs, now in its fifth year, is our only fundraiser. Your sponsorship or ticket purchase insures that we will be able to continue providing our students with the training, scholarships and mentoring that will literally change their lives and lead them to a rewarding and fruitful career.
IGNITE is not only an opportunity for you to try amazing dishes from some of the best chefs in Philadelphia, but also a chance to meet the very students you are helping.
At IGNITE you will be able to taste dishes from Philadelphia’s top chefs, bid on silent auction items and learn more about the programs that have been helping C-CAP Philadelphia students for the past 24 years.
