High School Students to Serve One Night Pop-Up Restaurant
Hospitality and restaurant management students at Seneca Valley and Sherwood high schools are partnering with industry leaders to create and serve a four-course meal at a pop-up restaurant in Potomac.
The fundraising event will be the culmination of months of planning among MCPS students, hospitality program teachers Melissa North and Lisa Gilbert, and the Foundation for Hospitality and Restaurant Managements’ (FHRM) Student Professional Development Committee.
The dinner is an opportunity for the students to experience the variety of activities necessary to stage a sophisticated experience—from social media and ticket sales to front-of-house management and heart-of-house hustle. With a team of chefs from CAVA, the students will design, prepare and serve a four-course gourmet dinner at the Falls Road Golf Course Café on Friday, Feb. 3. Even though tickets are sold out, the program is continuing to raise funds that are directed back into the program.
Proceeds from the fundraiser will allow FHRM to continue to offer programs throughout Montgomery County and give high school students the opportunity to explore the variety of careers in hospitality, work opportunities and apprenticeships and find ways to engage students and educators in projects.
