School of Tourism and Hospitality students host 3rd Food Euphoria
Fourth-year students at the School of Tourism and Hospitality (STH) hosted the 3rd annual Food Euphoria at the Strathmore Auditorium. In attendance were hospitality practitioners, family and friends of the students. The STH students planned, marketed, marshalled resources, and executed food production and service under the leadership of Mordecai Momoen Lagat, fourth-year Bachelor of Hospitality and Hotel Management student.
The Food Euphoria is a student activity that is meant to give the students a platform to demonstrate and execute skills learnt throughout their four-year course. The aim of this event is to empower students to apply lessons learnt in class – management, entrepreneurial and technical skills and it is a culmination of the different ideas and skills set of the graduating class. It also serves as a platform for industry to spot talent among the students. The second food euphoria attracted over 130 delegates in the year 2018.
Proceeds for Elimisha Stratizen
All proceeds from the event will be channeled to Elimisha Stratizen, an initiative by the Strathmore Student Council that aids in paying fees for the students who have the academic qualifications and zeal to study but have a challenge in raising the funds. The event was attended by renowned hospitality and tourism professionals.
Peter Kathanga, Director Corporate banking, at KCB Bank, speaking at the event, said, “This is a great platform to demonstrate the skills you have learnt in the last four years.”
Dr. David Chiawo, Dean, STH said, “Food Euphoria is a platform to extend the learning process, to build entrepreneurs and partnerships. As lecturers, we may sometimes think that students learn from us but in this instance, we are learning from the students.”
Sponsors of the Food Euphoria included: KCB Bank, Tin Tin Restaurant, The Tamarind Group, Coca-Cola, Orchard Juice, Grey Apple, Mlango Farm, and Infinite Planners. Raffle winners received meal and accommodation vouchers from various hotels and restaurants: Voyager Beach Resort, Crowne Plaza, Tin Tin Restaurant, Hotel Intercontinental, and the Tamarind.
