LDEI Sacramento awarded its first scholarship – a culinary award at the American River College Hospitality Management program – in September, 2017. As our chapter grows and funds accrue, we plan to offer scholarships and awards in other areas including wine, writing, farming/agriculture and restaurants/institutions as well as continuing to offer opportunities for culinary study.
