Nicki Olst, a culinary instructor at The Art Institute of Colorado, along with graduates Emma Nemechek and Johnny Dipeiro are donating time and effort to an upcoming charity event called Dumpster Dinner. They were recently featured on NBC 9 News.

Nemecheck earned an Associate of Applied Science in Baking & Pastry from The Art Institute of Colorado in 2012, while Dipeiro earned an Associate of Applied Science in Culinary Arts in 2006.

Dumpster Dinner is an event benefitting and creating awareness for Colorado’s very own “We Don’t Waste” non-profit that collects unused nutritious food from venues, caterers, restaurants and other food purveyors and distributes the food to Denver’s underserved populations at no cost to the donor or the agencies.
