Stacy’s Rise Project is a new program from Stacy’s Snacks that will empower the next generation of women culinary leaders to pursue their dreams through scholarship, mentorship and thought leadership. Stacy’s and the International Culinary Center (ICC) have partnered to provide full-tuition scholarships to women who will attend ICC’s New York City Culinary Entrepreneurship program. The recipients will also receive a stipend to finance additional costs beyond the curriculum. Beyond financial support, Stacy’s Rise Project will bring conversations about the lack of female culinary leaders to the forefront as a critical issue to be addressed and solved.
