Cooking for the Family continues to grow with support from so many great organizations, students, instructors, and volunteers! Check out our sponsors/partners page for our ever-growing list of supporters and locations around Great Cincinnati. Last year we graduated 70 and this year we are on track to graduate about 200 people! We couldn’t be more happy for our participants.
We are always looking for more sponsors, locations, volunteers, and participants. So please contact us at Jamie@thefarmchef.com if you are interested in getting involved or having this program in your community.
A few words from one of our participants:
“just want to give a Big Shout to Chef Mona Bronson-Fuqua for providing us with a terrific learning and above all fun cooking class. I never thought I would be excited about cooking. I may not be a fan of quinoa but I’ve been sautéing veggies and making tons of yogurt sauce. Kevin has inspired me to try a container garden. My granddaughter had a ball!” – Lisa Gibson McDaniel
The students did a great job during their first week of the Cooking for the Family Program. We started the day with a food knowledge and food identification survey to see where everyone was at. All of these vegetables we are going to be using during the next five weeks.
We are partnering with Findlay Market for this program, so many of the items will be obtained from them and their partner farms. We also got many of our herbs and radishes from Rothenberg Rooftop Garden. Which is an absolutely beautiful space. I look forward to working more with these organizations and our fabulous students.
