Be A Chef For A Day empowers kids to cultivate healthy, successful futures for themselves and their families through food literacy, culinary competence, curiosity, and creativity. While our work includes broadening access to quality food and ingredients, we believe providing education around nutritious cooking and eating habits can help transform, fulfill, and sustain our communities beyond hunger.
In creating this program, Monica Lapenta - our founder - was inspired by the teaching methods of two extraordinary Italian education pioneers, Maria Montessori and Loris Malaguzzi with his Reggio Emilia approach.
At Be a Chef for a Day we believe that:
At Be a Chef we encourages focus and patience.
