“The national recognition that Tom’s of Maine brings to the Community Culinary School of Charlotte is commendable,” said Executive Director Ron Ahlert.
“It will help in another way, giving our students more paths to success as they partner with organizations that have partnered in the past with Tom’s of Maine.
“And of course we are flattered that, out of the dozens of nonprofits that applied from North Carolina, they felt that our program was worthy.”
