 Share Your "Apron" Story or Inspiration

Do you have an “apron” story?  What stories could be told if aprons could talk?  Whether it is a serious chef apron/coat, a frilly dinner apron, a grilling apron showcasing your favorite team, a stained work apron, or even your grandmother’s hand embroidered apron, everyone who dons an apron has a personal or professional story to tell about their own history or adventures.  Where did you get the apron? Who taught you to cook?  Do you have a memorable food preparation/cooking experience involving the “apron”?  What or who inspired your love of nutrition, food, science, and/or wellness?

 To celebrate FCS Day 2021, AAFCS is inviting students and professionals to share their own personal or professional story tied to or inspired by an apron, chef coat, or lab coat and to include a picture of the apron or coat.
