Diversity + Inclusion

  • The Food Gap is committed to diversity and fostering an environment of respect, inclusion, compassion, and belonging. We unite people from all backgrounds, beliefs, abilities, and experiences in an environment that allows everyone to thrive individually, and for the group to thrive. 

  • The Food Gap welcomes students from all walks of life and encourages students from diverse backgrounds to apply.

  • We believe that diversity is a valuable part of experiential education and of life and we celebrate our differences. 

  • We celebrate Italian food and Italy's cuisine throughout the program, but we also encourage students to seek out occasional meals at restaurants owned and operated by immigrants and people of diverse backgrounds in order to celebrate the diversity of our host country. 

  • We strive to build a team of staff who reflect the diversity that we celebrate and seek in our students. 

  • Staff of The Food Gap are required to model respect, inclusivity, and compassion at all time in order to maintain and foster a welcoming, kind, and inclusive environment for all students and staff. Staff ensures an experience free of discrimination, harassment and bullying.

  • We strive to make our programs affordable for families of diverse socioeconomic backgrounds by providing scholarship opportunities.
