On Tuesday, February 28, 2017, the Center for Innovation in Ministry hosted the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF). The meeting brought together non-profit and ministry leaders to dialogue with the foundation about the possibility of launching a national children’s program.

Founded in 1987, the NRAEF is the philanthropic foundation of the National Restaurant Association. The NRAEF impacts the prosperity of the restaurant industry by developing a stronger workforce and building the next generation of industry leaders. The Foundation’s educational initiatives provide culinary, management, food safety and employability skills training to build a pipeline of talent for the growing industry.

The National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation exists to enhance the restaurant industry’s service to the public through education, community engagement and promotion of career opportunities. The NRAEF works to attract, develop and retain a career-oriented professional workforce for the restaurant industry.

Stay tuned for updates on the partnership and programs developed.
