Let’s Talk Food: Hawaii Community College’s five-course dinner

Hawaii Community College’s Culinary Arts Program has been in existence since 1952, preparing students “to achieve excellence in their career.” Currently, there are 63 students enrolled in the program at the Hilo and Palamanui campuses. Ninety percent of the college’s students are from Hawaii Island, and 78 percent of the alumni stay on the island. Our community has a vested interest in the college, as many of us depend on HCC’s graduates as future employees.

Those with information about the subjects in the photos can contact the museum at 935-5021 or archives@lymanmuseum.org. THIS PHOTO (NO. 17582) was captured Jan. 12, 1964.
