Does your child have a keen interest in the culinary arts?
Do you want more healthy food and activities surrounding healthy eating in your child’s school?
Are you a teacher who is excited about healthy eating and want to see more of it in your classroom?
If you answered yes to any of these question then YOUR SCHOOL NEEDS A CULINARY CLUB!
Sure Chef gives children the knowledge and skills needed to adapt and thereby build healthy food habits not only for themselves but for their families as well. Reaching children while they are young and giving them the confidence in the kitchen they need to adapt to the challenges they may face throughout their lifetime is invaluable. Our programs are structured to introduce a wide variety of whole food cooking skills while developing a palate for a healthy balanced diet to the whole family!
Sure Chef provides culinary education programs for students and parents of all ages. With the growing numbers of food allergies and expanded awareness, we have developed a program that will help you address allergies in your school as well as provide a hands-on approach to educating students with and without food allergies.
Sure chef will partner with member/members of your faculty who are interested in culinary nutrition. We take all the work out and provide a fully structured program so
the facilitator can take part and enjoy the class as well. We also encourage at least one parent to volunteer in each class so we can build a relationship with the families as well.
There are many options for your culinary club. The club should meet once a week for at least a six week program. This can be easily adapted to suit school schedules and breaks.
Note that there are many classes that do not require a kitchen and can be done in a classroom. Smaller groups alternating at student homes is also an option if the kitchens are a
dequate size. Churches in your area are also available during the weekdays.
Here is a list of a few kitchens in this area if your school doesn’t have a kitchen that is suitable.
This is what makes this program so accessible. Funding can be achieved in many ways and the club can also serve as a vehicle to raise money for other programs and events.
Have a fundraising event in your school. Some ideas for this would be:
Take over the cafeteria day:
For this event we would advertise that for one day the sure chef team and some student volunteers will take over the cafeteria for lunch time, and offer delicious healthy gourmet options instead of the typical pizza and fries.
We will sell $10 tickets to students and let them vote, weeks in advance on the menu!
Hot Soup Stand
For this event we would advertize that for one day the Sure Chef team and some student volunteers would be making hot soup for sale $5 a bowl, at lunch time once a week. With the smell of delicious soup flooding the halls, this idea is sure to make a few bucks.
After a six week program our chefs are ready to share their new talent with friends and family. Sure chef will provide printed invites/tickets to your school’s culinary dinner party. Tickets for the dinner party are sold at the end of the program. The average cost of a ticket is approx. $75 depending on the size of the group. As always the more the better! The funds raised at this event will provide funding for the program to grow in the following
semester. Giving this program a sustainable future in the school for years to come.
This is a event where dishes from around the world are featured and tickets for tasters are sold at the event. This is a great evening event that can get parents involved in that features the cultural diversity within the school and creates community involvement.
Each year thousands are given to schools for extracurricular activities. Especially those that promote a healthy and active lifestyle. Sure Chef will work with your program coordinator to make sure your school gets all the funding that is available to them.
Sure Chef provides education programs and nutrition support program for parents as well. We can help you educate the importance of student nutrition through hands on classes for parents.
