New Orleans Culinary & Hospitality Institute (NOCHI) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that educates a diverse community of learners to sustain an ever-evolving hospitality industry. We offer a platform for professional and personal growth, increasing access and minimizing barriers to career pathways while supporting the promotion and economic development of the culinary arts and hospitality industry.


With a deep appreciation for food’s cultural and historical context, we at NOCHI are working to enrich and diversify our city’s centuries-old legacy of hospitality. Through innovative programming and strategic partnerships, we aim to be a national leader and educational hub.
