Miami, Oct 11, 2016 – Miami Dade College’s (MDC) Miami Culinary Institute (MCI) students have a big order, serving breakfast to more than 800 cancer survivors at this year’s Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on Saturday, Oct. 15, from 6 – 10 a.m.

Led by MCI Chefs Jose Casals and Steve Sabatino, 30 student volunteers from MCI will be preparing and serving delicious breakfast dishes such as vegetable frittata, eggs, turkey sausage burritos, seasonal fruit salad and MCI’s signature pink oatmeal.

“The opportunity to be able to collaborate with the MCI faculty and students on our survivor breakfast is one that fills me with “pink” pride,” said Sherri Martens-Curtis, Board President for the Miami/ Lauderdale Affiliate of Susan G. Komen.  “Their effort creates a beautiful morning for 800 breast cancer survivors and brings the message of breast cancer awareness to the college at the same time. It truly is an example of teamwork at its very best.”
