The Just Food Community Chef Program is closed for 2014.  It will reopen again in the spring of 2015.  Applications will be available in late February-early March 2015.

Our Community Chef Training program teaches community members how to facilitate workshops about local, seasonal eating and cooking; basic nutrition; fruit and vegetable identification; recipe selection and creation; knife skills; and food storage and preparation.

Our Community Chefs inspire and empower New Yorkers to create delicious and healthy meals for themselves and their families. After completing the three-day training, Community Chefs conduct cooking demonstration workshops from June to November at City Farms Farmers' Markets. They also occasionally provide demonstrations at health fairs, schools, and community events.
