More than 200 teachers from high schools and career and technical centers across the nation are taking advantage of their summer break to hone their culinary and restaurant management instruction skills at the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation's (NRAEF) Summer Institutes, a series of weeklong professional development workshops launched on June 12 and held at culinary schools throughout the U.S.

Since 2002, Darden Restaurants has supported the NRAEF and its mission to enhance the restaurant industry's service to the public through education, community engagement, and promotion of career opportunities. Darden's funding also helps support ProStart, a national secondary school program that introduces students to career opportunities in the restaurant industry and provides them with an industry-driven curriculum on topics ranging from culinary techniques to management skills. Nearly 140,000 students in all 50 states are enrolled in the ProStart program.
