We have partnered with Edmonton-based local non-profit E4C to deliver the Young Chefs program to high-needs Edmonton area schools.
Young Chefs is based in high-need schools also offering breakfast and lunch programs to mitigate food security issues some families and students face at home.
Our community educators lead groups of Grade 4 students through 2-3 recipes each week, focusing on basic kitchen skills, food, kitchen safety and the importance of helping out in the kitchen.
The students prepare each recipe from scratch, then eat and clean up together. The program fosters confidence and skill development in the students, some of whom are the primary cooks in their own homes.
