Please come enjoy healthy, nutritious pancake recipes at the KVCC Foundation’s student scholarship pancake breakfast on Friday, April 7 from 8 – 10 a.m. in the Culinary/Allied Health Building on Kalamazoo Valley’s Bronson Health Living Campus.
“These won’t be your ordinary pancakes and toppings,” said Director of Culinary Education John Korycki. ”Our chef instructors and culinary students will present the breakfast favorite made with healthy and nutritious ingredients. We will be serving up the best pancakes to benefit the culinary student scholarship program.” Ingredients featured will be preserved Michigan grown fruits and berries, and seasonal maple syrup.
According to Steve Doherty, executive director of the KVCC Foundation, the need for financial aid among students has continued to rise steadily. During 2015-16, Kalamazoo Valley Community College processed 14,122 requests for financial aid. Of those requests, only 41 percent, or 5,775 students received some form of financial aid. The number of financial aid applications continues to increase each year and the Foundation’s scholarship fund is one way the college works to meet student needs. “The pancake breakfast is a great way to enjoy good food and contribute to a worthy cause, the minimum suggested donation is just $10 per person,” Doherty said.
The pancake breakfast will be served buffet style in the college’s Havirmill Café and 418 Restaurant located at 418 East Walnut Street in downtown Kalamazoo. Parking is available on site or at metered locations on the street.
