The mission of The Cheese Culture Coalition is to promote equity and inclusion within the cheese industry by empowering BIPOC communities through education.
The Cheese Education Grant is given to BIPOC individuals who have an interest in beginning, expanding, or advancing their careers in the cheese industry. It is an open ended grant that can be used for, but not limited to: funding travel and admission to the American Cheese Society conference, educational producer visits, scholarships for higher education, the Certified Cheese Professional exam, or other certifications, or funding for workshops or classes through producers or other teachers. For more information on our Cheese Education Grant email us at JamiePng@cheeseculturecoalition.org
The Cheese Education Program specifically focuses on the cheese education of school aged students in underrepresented communities. This program brings comprehensive cheese education to schools through assemblies or workshops/virtual workshops in which a volunteer or representative will come directly to the students.
