The Growing Chefs Program in BC is where growers and chefs encourage school children to get engaged with growing and cooking local produce.
Whilst I was in BC there was a fundraising dinner for “one-of-a-kind.” Local chefs worked with local growers, and the little chefs from the local school, to produce a meal created from local produce. It raised $25,000 in one evening. An winning formula that created a truly local event.
Why not try it in your local area?
