Who We Are and What We Do
Fresh Chefs Society empowers youth transitioning out of foster care with the skills necessary to take charge of their eating lifestyle and to provide knowledge of the culinary arts through meaningful educational experiences with community cooks, chefs, and restaurants.
We use cooking education to give those same youth transitioning out of the foster care system the skills needed for independent living through interactive and hands-on cooking events that introduce control into a youth’s life.
We foster human connections through food and expose youth transitioning out of the foster care system to new restaurants, grocers, and other local food resources.
We introduce community members interested in the local food movement to youth in the foster care system.
