The Baking Association of Canada (BAC) has established a $100,000 endowment in the School of Hospitality, Tourism and Culinary Arts at Centennial College in Toronto. The funds will go towards scholarships for students in the field of commercial baking.
“We are truly committed to a legacy of nurturing educational relationships through our scholarship to the baking programs at Centennial and to the students who will one day be the future of our industry,” says Dan Peroff, chair, BAC – Ontario Chapter. The association has had a close relationship with the school since 2013.
This September when the college opens its new facility for the School of Hospitality, Tourism and Culinary Arts, it will feature a new commercial baking lab named in honour of the BAC – Ontario Chapter. Exclusively for use of students in the Baking and Pastry Arts Management and Baking Pre-Employment programs, the lab will include equipment found in large-scale baking operations, making it an invaluable work and educational experience.
