Culinary students' excellence recognized by city health department

MST's Intro to Culinary Arts
The Manchester School of Technology Intro to Culinary Arts class has earned a Public Health Excellence Award for Food Safety.  The award from the Manchester Health Department honors food establishments which achieve the highest sanitary standards when it comes to food preparation. Fewer than 10% of the Manchester’s commercial kitchens receive the award.

“MST’s Intro to Culinary Arts class deserves to be among this year’s award recipients,” said Tim Soucy, Manchester Public Health Director. “The instructors and students have demonstrated a commitment to training a highly skilled food service workforce and maintaining safe food handling practices to prevent food borne illnesses in the community.”

The Culinary Arts kitchen at MST is inspected twice a year, just like any other restaurant in the city. MST met the rigorous criteria for the award, which includes compliance with all applicable laws and regulations with no critical violations and average inspection scores of 90 or higher.
