Careers through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP), the national leader providing scholarships, education, and career opportunities in the culinary arts to underserved youth and Meatless Monday, an initiative of the nonprofit The Monday Campaigns, which provides healthy and environmentally friendly information and recipes will provide Flores a $5,000 scholarship for creating Kung Pao Chili.

Flores intends to pursue a career in culinary arts and will take part in the C-CAP LA Cooking Competition for Scholarships.  She would like to attend The New England Culinary Institute (NECI) for its great program and the independence it would offer her.

“When I began to work on the Meatless Monday project, I wanted to convert a traditional meat dish into a meatless dish.  That way, everyone can enjoy the flavor.  Cooking for other people is about sharing experiences and sharing memories. I am excited to continue to learn about new techniques and flavors.  I will use what I learn to be creative in my work.  Cooking fine foods for other people will be how I express myself and share myself with people,” says Lucile.
