Our Community Mission
The Chefs utilize their community partnerships to feed the hungry and homeless, and provide disabled people and the youth with life lessons and cooking skills.
The Chefs' goal is to establish a formal educational program that fosters aspiring chefs who live with an array of disabilities. They hope that through their organization, they will instill a sense of self-sufficiency and provide disabled chefs with coping mechanisms via cooking.
