Okanagan College believes in providing our Culinary Arts students with real-life learning experiences and opportunities to give back to the local community. We are often asked to contribute our time and talents in ... dinners. Due to the sheer number of requests, we have implemented a procedure that includes a brief questionnaire that will be reviewed by a committee that meets on a monthly basis.
