Everyone needs to know how to prepare nourishing food

It’s around the table and in the preparation of food that we learn about ourselves and about the world

– Alice Waters

Cool Chefs, Cornucopia Project’s original youth cooking series, was founded on the belief that food is fundamental, not only because it sustains our bodies, but also because it can feed our spirit and our sense of community.

Our kitchen programs bring students from school gardens to the next steps along the food journey. Partnering with local professional chefs, we equip youth with the knowledge and skills to prepare nourishing foods in creative and sustainable ways alongside their peers.
