Mission & Purpose

Honors & Aprons serves to encourage passion and creativity within Honors students in the kitchen and facilitate learning at all levels of experience. 

H&A hosts informational/educational meetings to encourage the development of cooking and baking skills and knowledge as well as social meetings to promote a supportive and engaging environment. The organization also aims to contribute to the surrounding Gainesville community through volunteer service.


Honors & Aprons seeks to inspire culinary knowledge at all skill levels by starting from the basics and developing a supportive environment for students to become more comfortable in the kitchen. Informational meetings include both baking and cooking as topics, with presentations on the artistic and scientific sides of each. 

We are currently planning for an in-person semester and masks are recommended for those attending. Meeting details are subject to change based on official health recommendations. 

General Body Meetings (GBM) will be held on Fridays from 5 - 6 pm EST beginning September 3 for the Fall 2021 semester in both the Hume Classroom and Cypress Kitchen. Other club activities (e.g., service events, presentations, socials, etc.) may be offered throughout the semester. Please make sure to join our newsletter list and social groups for access to an updated schedule (see details below under "How to Join").
