Junior Chefs

Junior Chefs is a youth leadership development program that brings together Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina staff, partner agencies, nutrition experts, culinary professionals and other community resources to offer young would-be cooks hands-on experience. As they prepare for the Cook-Off Competition held annually at Johnson and Wales University, participants receive culinary and nutrition training in a mentoring environment, working side by side with professional chefs to learn kitchen, knife and food preparation techniques.

The young cooks also take part in a series of exercises designed to teach interviewing skills, work ethics, goal setting and teamwork conducted by Johnson and Wales Human Resources Department.

For information on Junior Chefs, contact David Brown at 704-375-9639 ext. 23 or via e-mail at dlbrown@secondharvest.org.
