Culinary Arts to Compete as NASA HUNCH Finalist

Culinary Arts to Compete as NASA HUNCH Finalist
Posted on 12/13/2022
ZitoSix teams have been chosen to compete at the United States Space and Rocket Center as part of the NASA HUNCH Culinary Arts Preliminary Competition.

Chef Zane Johnson was notified yesterday that his team of culinary students submitting their recipe was chosen to move to the next round of competition.

"We have a chance to be one of the top 10 teams in the country that will be invited to the Johnson Space Center food lab to compete for the top spot and get our food sent to space," Johnson stated.

NEACTC has partnered for the past six years as a NASA HUNCH partner in the Engineering Design and Production Lab.  Students in that program have begun the task of building replacement parts on a rocket that will eventually land in the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.

"It has been both exciting and gratifying to think that our very own students enrolled at NEACTC have CNC machined parts that are now in flight on the International Space Station.  That is quite a feat for high school students," noted NEACTC Director Eddie Crain.

"As center director, I could not be more proud of the work this center and our students are completing for NASA and I wish our Culinary Arts team the best of luck in February."
