The BCA is a National non-profit foodservice, hospitality and educational networking organization. BCA''s Mission is to create awareness, exposure and educational opportunities for people of color within the profession and to provide a vehicle to support the development of young people who are considering culinary arts and/or hospitality as a career. Building the bridges and finding the common ground for Blacks, Hispanics, and Asian-Americans and Native Americans has been a challenge, but we realize the first step is to have engaged individuals that believe in the importance of diversity despite their own background.
