Become a Sponsor of BCAGlobal

BCAGlobal advocates for diversity in the culinary world. It is concerned with leveling the playing field with qualified professionals as diverse as those they serve. Thanks to the support of our sponsors and students, BCAGlobal has sustained the recognition as the organization the culinary industry turns to for qualified professionals of color with passion for excellence.  BCAGlobal and partners expect professionalism and commitment from our student members, as they will set the bar for the future.

To further help prepare our students in their journey through the professional world, mentors and supporters like you are needed and cherished. You don’t have to be a chef or a person of color to mentor. Your support and involvement with these young women and men give them invaluable life experience as it creates a direct link with professionals who will keep them moving in the right direction.

The culinary, foodservice and hospitality industry is very competitive.  Doors don’t just open on their own; sometimes you can knock, sometimes you have to push and other times you need just to knock them down.  However once you get through the door, you have to be professional and as prepared as possible for what’s on the other side.  So if you are not a member of our team,  join  BCAGlobal and help us give our students the tools they need to be successful.

The tremendous support of our corporate sponsors, strategic alliances, friends, volunteers and all of those who have supported us since the beginning have continued to help us grow and provide the services and programs, that have changed lives. Your financial support has allowed us to assist, mentor and motivate countless students interested in the culinary and hospitality profession. Thank you for your continued support.

BCAGlobal’s board will continue to function with an open, honest format, and make ourselves available to all our affiliates. Please contact us at (212) 643-6570 or email
