Newport News, VA – Students and faculty from the Culinary Institute of Virginia (CIV) will be serving dinner to nearly 100 city youth ages 10 to 18 on Wednesday, March 15 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the Dochiki Civic and Social Club, located at 2705 Chestnut Avenue in Newport News. In addition, they will also deliver a presentation on proper dining etiquette.
“We believe it is very important that our young people develop these skills early on,” says Tom Harmon Chairman of the club’s civic committee. “In years past, these were things you learned around the dinner table at home, but many of our youth come from single parent homes where family dinners are few and far between. Someday, one of these kids may have a job interview over lunch. Knowing how to conduct themselves properly could well affect the outcome.”
