The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) wants to make sure that those with cooking experience on their resumes are included in the national health debate.

At a recent reception hosted by the CIA at its Hudson Valley, New York headquarters, area chefs noted that they want to make sure Washington lawmakers consider the school as a resource on farm-to-table issues and the country’s fight against obesity, the Hudson Valley Journal News reports.

Michael Oates, president and chief executive officer of the Hudson Valley Economic Development Corporation, told the news source the school should be considered an authority on health related issues.

I think they want to come down here and talk about some of their wellness programs and try to educate federal officials as to the value they bring to the marketplace, Oates said. “They are already a well-established brand name across the world, so it’s easy to get that message across.”

CIA also has campuses in California, Texas and Singapore.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that employment opportunities for chefs and head cooks will be best for those with formal training at a culinary arts school or 4-year college.
