Last week, we launched Chefs Collaborative’s end of year fundraising campaign with a goal to raise $10,000 for our 2015 scholarship and education programs. In the first 7 days, we raised $3,908 thanks to the generosity of more than 25 donors. We need to raise $6,092 more to reach our goal, and with only 23 days left, we need your help today!
Your support is more critical than ever so that we can continue to create the educational opportunities that educate and inspire chefs to ‘change menus’ and ‘change lives.’
Your contribution directly helps chefs like our 2014 scholarship recipients.

Chefs’ influence extends beyond the four walls of their restaurants. When chefs are informed and inspired to change menus, they have the power to change the life of the soil, water and air; the lives of plants, fish and animals; the lives of farmers, ranchers and fisherman; the lives of purveyors; the lives of their staff; the lives of their guests — the lives of entire communities that are nourished and restored by food. By helping one chef, you’re helping to change the lives of thousands of others.
