Canadian celebrity chef Jamie Kennedy supports DC’s new Centre for Food

The evening of September 27 marked another important milestone in Durham College’s history when the college officially launched the public phase of its $5 million Growing for our Future fundraising campaign in support of its new Centre for Food. The new 36,000-square-foot building is being built on the northwest corner of campus and is designed to accommodate approximately 900 additional students studying in culinary, hospitality, tourism, agricultural and horticulture programs.

Titled Get Involved, the event saw close to 150 community leaders; business partners; faculty; staff; students; alumni; board members; and donors join Durham College President Don Lovisa and guest celebrity chef Jamie Kennedy to watch the college’s Culinary Skills and Hospitality Management – Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism students showcase their talents while learning more about the Centre for Food.
