Harvest Moon 2021

UpComing Events

Due to COVID-19 the Harvest Moon 2020 was cancelled. Instead we are celebrating locally owned restaurants that support C-CAP Arizona year round. We hope that you will join us.

Celebrate the Full Moon in a Neighborhood near you. Thank you Chantico Restaurant for hosting us on April 26th! Your generosity is always appreciated.

Host the next Full Moon event at your restaurant. Email jsmith@ccapinc.org. It is a great way to not only promote your restaurant, but to help a student follow their culinary dreams.

Annual Harvest Moon Fundraiser is coming on October 20, 2021

We had to cancel the Harvest Moon Event in 2020, but save the date for 2021! October 20th at Tarbell’s in Phoenix– 5:30pm VIP Access. 6:30pm – 9pm All Access. Tickets On Sale Now. This event features 20 High Schools with Local Chefs preparing small plates, Nat Nathan and the MacDaddy-O’s. Celebrity Chef Scott Conant will be at the VIP Access event signing copies of his new cookbook, Love, Peace and Pasta.

In spite or perhaps because of the COVID Pandemic, C-CAP Arizona has a record number of 52 Arizona High Schools signed up for the C-CAP Educational program.

Visiting 52 High Schools spread across Arizona can be a challenge, and to deliver it virtually adds to that challenge. The students have had to cut back so many high school experiences. We want to help them not to lose their culinary passion but to continue to grow their culinary passion.

In the past, we have relied on Local Restaurants to help us with fundraising, hands-on experiences, and donation of their times and services. This year so many restaurants are struggling with only 25% capacity limits and having to manage take-out food service.

You can help by participating in the Featured Restaurants Full Moon Events and dine-in or dine-out, sponsor a high school, purchase knife kits, aprons, shirts, caps for students, or schools, and/or Purchase Harvest Moon tickets. All proceeds are used to support Careers through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP Arizona).

Donate $20 to C-CAP Arizona and we will send you a Don’t Whisk It Mask. Just a few masks left available. mlc@collaborativeem.com for details on how you can get yours.

Did you know that C-CAP Arizona gave away thousands of dollars in scholarships to students across the state on Saturday May 1st? It was thanks to all of your support. Congratulations to the recipients and THANK YOU!


In Arizona, Careers through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP) is a statewide program that prepares 6,600 high school students in 40 schools for college and career opportunities in the restaurant and hospitality industry. C-CAP provides curriculum enrichment for high school culinary classrooms, career exploration and advising opportunities, scholarships through cooking competitions, college advising, teacher professional development, and product donations for classrooms.
