Description

CHEFs’ overarching mission is to improve the long-term health and well being of people

across the United States by providing them with access to nutrition education, instruction in meal

preparation, and resources to a more readily available supply of healthy food. Through education and community outreach, CHEFs will combat the growing obesity epidemic and increased

frequency of diet-related diseases, which disproportionately impact low-income families and

communities. We will work to accomplish these goals by assembling a diverse group of volunteers

drawn from universities and community-based organizations, who will reach out through various

workshops and events to underserved communities that lack access to affordable and nutritious

food. CHEFs’ ultimate goal is to enable the constituents of the communities we serve to recognize the injustice associated with access to nutritious food. Together with those communities we will work to eliminate the inequalities prevalent in our current food system.

How you can get involved:

1. Education: Volunteer in a local public school classroom as part of our CookShop Program.

2. Experience: Participate in FREE monthly Cooking Classes.

3. Awareness: Attend lectures and field trips to local greenmarkets and organic farms.

4. Access: Improve access to underserved communities by working to increase the number of

greenmarkets, eradicate Food Deserts, and increase the availability of affordable and

healthy food.

5. Donate: Even if you can’t participate in our events, your support on any level is greatly

appreciated.
