STLCC-Meramec Welcomes Author Kelsey Timmerman

Wednesday, April 23 7:00 - 9:00 pm

St. Louis Community College-Meramec welcomes author Kelsey Timmerman to the Meramec Theatre April 23, 2014.

Author Kelsey Timmerman discusses his latest book, “Where Am I Eating? An Adventure through the Global Food Economy,” Wednesday, April 23, at St. Louis Community College-Meramec.

The discussion is from 7-9 p.m. and takes place in the theater on campus, 11333 Big Bend Road. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Seating is general admission on a first-come basis.

Timmermann will discuss topics from his latest book, including global trade, human rights, food safety, fair trade, climate change, rural poverty and biodiversity. Kelsey’s poignant, troubling and sometimes wacky travel adventures around the world to discover where his favorite foods are grown and harvested will give individuals a new perspective on what is in their grocery carts.

Timmerman has spoken at more than 70 colleges, universities and high schools across the United States, empowering people to “think globally and act locally.”

Timmerman will be signing books after the discussion. “Where Am I Eating?” currently is on sale in the Meramec Bookstore and will be available for purchase the night of the event.

For more information, call 314-984-7689.

Applications Being Accepted for
Sebastian Murabito Scholarship

Letters of request are now being accepted from active Professional members  for continuing education travel grants.

The Sebastian Murabito Scholarship was created in 2009 to help fund continuing education opportunities for our Professional members. The Chefs de Cuisine annual golf tournament, formerly called "Bon Appe-tee Tournament", was renamed last year to the "Sebastian Murabito Memorial Golf Tournament" and funds raised from the tournament fund this scholarship.

This is a great opportunity for an active Professional member to take a specialty course and expand their culinary knowledge.

Letters of application should include information about tuition to the institution, travel and lodging. Remuneration will be after the education is complete or sent directly to the institution of the person’s choice.

Requests should be sent to:

Sebastian Murabito Scholarship
St. Louis Chef de Cuisine Education Foundation
PO Box 510301
St. Louis, Mo. 63151 
 

Murabito Scholarships are awarded annually at the Sebastian Murabito Memorial Golf Tournament, held in June of each year.

Charitable Dental ClinicMOMOM Logo

The Missouri Mission of Mercy FREE dental clinic is scheduled for May 2-3, 2014 at the Chaifetz Arena on the campus of St. Louis University.

Sponsored by the Missouri Dental Association Foundation, the Missouri Mission of Mercy (MOMOM) is a large scale dental clinic that provides free oral healthcare to patients of all ages who cannot otherwise afford care. MOM events across America have been providing free dental services for the underserved since 2000. These clinics have helped more than 100,000 patients and provided nearly $50 million in free dental services since inception. Thanks to dedicated volunteers and generous sponsors, we have had two successful clinics in the state of Missouri. More than $2 million in free care has been provided to more than 3,600 patients by more than 2,000 dental and general volunteers.

There is a terrible gap in our healthcare system when it comes to providing even routine dental care. If left untreated, dental disease can lead to many more serious health problems such as heart disease. We are always in need of volunteers and sponsors for this event. For more information about sponsorship or the general event, go to: www.momom.org.
