The William Floyd High School Career and Technical Education Culinary Arts program is hosting its fifth annual Taste of the Town event on Nov. 7.

The high school’s award-winning culinary arts program offers juniors and seniors the opportunity to work with trained chefs and earn college credits for post-secondary education in the culinary arts.

Taste of the Town, which began in 2016, gives these students the opportunity to network with local restaurateurs, as well as cook and serve a dish of their own, all while raising money for the district’s CTE programs and food pantry.
