British Columbia Chapter
Our Chapter supports two causes with annual donations of funds. These two groups are: Project Chef and Growing Chefs. Both of these groups are dedicated to teaching children about growing and eating healthy, nutritious food. Several of our members are directly involved with these organizations.
Dame Barbara Finley is the founder of Project Chef.
Project CHEF: Cook Healthy Edible Food is an experiential, curriculum-based school program aimed at children in grades four and five that teaches students about healthy food: where it comes from, what it tastes like, how to prepare it and how to enjoy sharing it around a table.
Designed to immerse children in the process of cooking from preparation to clean-up, children gain knowledge about food; they discover the pleasure and satisfaction in creating meals for themselves and they develop the skills so that they can apply their new-found knowledge and abilities in making healthy food choices at home.
