On May 6th, 2023, the Culinary Institute Lenotre participated in the Best Buddies Friendship Walk in Houston. This event is a walk that aims to raise funds and awareness for Best Buddies, an organization dedicated to providing opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) to form friendships, secure jobs, and live independently.

The Culinary Institute Lenotre has always been committed to supporting the community, and this event was no exception. By participating in the Best Buddies Friendship Walk, the Institute was able to show its unwavering support for individuals with IDD and help raise funds for this worthy cause.

The event was a great success, with perfect weather and a gentle breeze. The Culinary Institute Lenotre team arrived early to set up their booth and get ready for the walk. The booth featured samples of some of the Institute’s delicious cookies, which were generously donated by the Institute.

The team was joined by a number of Best Buddies participants, who were eager to take part in the walk and show their support for the organization. The walk itself was a joyful event, with participants of all ages and abilities walking side-by-side, laughing and chatting as they made their way through the beautiful Houston scenery.

Throughout the day, the Culinary Institute Lenotre team was proud to be part of such a wonderful event. They were inspired by the commitment and dedication of the Best Buddies participants and grateful for the opportunity to contribute to such an important cause.

As the walk came to a close, the Culinary Institute Lenotre team was tired but happy, knowing that they had made a real difference in the lives of people with IDD. They were already looking forward to next year’s event and eager to continue their support for Best Buddies and the incredible work they do.

The Best Buddies Friendship Walk in Houston was an inspiring event that brought together people from all walks of life to support a worthy cause. The Culinary Institute Lenotre was proud to be a part of it and looks forward to continuing its commitment to supporting the community in the future.
