CHICAGO, Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Bees are working round the clock so that student beekeepers from the Chicago High School of Agricultural Sciences (CHSAS) can harvest enough honey to supply The Eli's Cheesecake Company of Chicago with the key ingredient for Eli's honey of a gift this Valentine's Day...Wildflower Honey Mediterranean Cheesecake. According to Marc Schulman, Eli's President, "It's a win win... by purchasing the honey from CHSAS, we not only support the school financially, but give students the opportunity to participate in many aspects of the food industry." CHSAS senior Nallely Ruvalcaba agrees, "As a food science major, I like the fact that our teachers incorporate real business situations into the classroom...like the honey project." Students are involved in every step of the process, from harvesting to preparing and bottling to delivery of the wildflower honey to Eli's bakery located on Chicago's Northwest Side. All proceeds from purchasing the honey as well as a portion of the proceeds from Wildflower Honey Cheesecake sales go the CHSAS's college scholarship fund for deserving high school seniors.
