GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTUI) -- Friday is Northwestern Michigan College’s Taste of Success To-Go Day.
For the last 25 years, the NMC Culinary Institute allows its students to get hands-on experience in serving their community.
Throughout the semester, students work on creating menus, plan their recipes and then deliver meals to those that bought one.
For the past two years, students have had to work around COVID-19, transforming the dining experience into to-go boxes.
"It's also a learning opportunity for them, and a way for them to connect with the community in a way that they haven't in the last few years,” Culinary Arts Instructor Chef Jim Morse said.
All of the proceeds from the fundraising event go towards student scholarships.
Last year they raised more than $125,000.
All of this year’s boxes have been sold, but next year chef morse says they're planning to host the event in-person.
