College education is expensive. Students pay for more than just tuition fees - they have to allocate funds for other important things such as housing, food, and miscellaneous fees. Thankfully, there are ways to find free money for college, and most of them aren't that hard to find.

One way to receive free cash for education comes easy for many: A love for food. Those who love to cook and want to enroll in courses revolving around the delectable science and art of food preparation (and the equally wonderful art of eating) might be able to acquire for themselves scholarships to support their education.

Want to receive scholarships for loving food? Here are some College Scholarships for adventurous foodies and aspiring chefs, according to U.S. News.
