Stratford University Adds New “Street Food” Culinary Course

Stratford University Adds New “Street Food” Culinary Course

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United States, around 2.5 billion people around the world eat street food each day. Street food, those ready-to-eat foods and beverages that are prepared and sold on the streets, play an important role in helping to support and identify cultures. The new Street Food course, at Stratford University, will focus on giving students an in-depth awareness about the sector, as well as how they may go about owning their own street food business.

“In today’s economy, it is more challenging to open a restaurant, yet it is a dream of many,” explains Charleen Huebner, the baking and pastry coordinator at Stratford University (www.stratford.edu). “Being a street food vendor is the perfect fit for millions of people around the country. It gives them an opportunity to have a small culinary business, but it eliminates the big expenses of having a restaurant.”
