Escoffier in the Community
It is well known that for as much as Auguste Escoffier fed the rich, royal and famous, he fed the poor, sick and hungry. Community outreach was a large part of his philosophy, and in return, it is a large part of ours. From our sustainability-centered curriculum to our involvement in local charities in the Boulder, CO and Austin, TX areas, our institution’s civic outreach is fundamental to our constitution.
Every Decembers our Boulder campus has partnered with local charity, Bridge House Community Table, to bake and decorate 50 dozen cookies for the areas homeless and working poor.
