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.

Hello, Springtime. Didn't expect you to come so soon - but you are here and we are glad!

Thank you to all of those who came out to the Salt & Time and Live Oak Beer Dinner. The pours were heavy, the food delicious and adventurous and the company great. Joy, our Apprentice for the evening really enjoyed her time in the kitchen with Josh Jones and visiting with everyone. As I popped by each table, it was lovely to see familiar faces and old Fresh Chefs friends, but was especially exciting was meeting all of you new to Fresh Chefs. Thank you for making the evening a success!

This month's scoop is a volunteer round up of sorts. We have two great opportunities coming and could use all hands on deck in Austin. We hope to see you at one (or both) soon! CASA Cooking on Budget is a personal favorite and you'll see why!
