Hors d’oeuvres and an abundance of good cheer was on hand at last night’s Food & Finance High School’s Annual Benefit.  Attendees were treated to a cornucopia of Cornell cuisine (Big Red Tilapia, Hydroponic Greens, etc.) served by student chefs.  Five star food wasn’t the only thing on the menu.  Guests bid on auction items including; lunch at the Food Network kitchens, dinner at Gramercy Tavern, meals at AJ Maxwell’s, Mae Mae’s, Dizzy’s Coca Cola Club, Blue Smoke, Union Square Cafe and more.  Proceeds from this event assist students in paying for college application fees and other college expenses and provide paid internships and stipends for students.

Food & Finance High School is a Cornell University Cooperative Extension partner school.  To read more about this partnership please visit:
