Growing Chefs! Headquarters

Growing Chefs! is excited to welcome students into our new headquarters at the historic Auberge du Petit Prince restaurant at 460 King Street in London. Students will visit the site on a field trip to experience an authentic restaurant setting, explore our Learning Garden, and take part in grade-appropriate cooking activities! In the restaurant setting, students will witness the entire food system in action, from production to consumption and beyond! We hope that a systems context will help us all recognize the importance and impact of our food choices on the community and environment. The field trip will culminate with the students sharing a meal they have had a hand in preparing.

How It Works

  • Who it’s for: Available for grades 4-8. We highly encourage teachers to apply in pairs - only one application is required per pairing. Our space is suitable for up to 60 students at a time. A teacher applies on behalf of their class (or pair of classes) by filling out the application below. Paired classes should be of similar grade.

  • Timing: Field trips will be scheduled for three hours between 9:30am and 2:00pm. Field trips are available on Mondays/Tuesdays/Wednesdays in September-October or May-June (harvest seasons)

Requirements

  • $5-$8 per student (depending on the meal). Includes a two or three course lunch.

  • One adult per every 8 students, not including Growing Chefs! staff/volunteers

  • Schools are responsible for providing transportation to and from Growing Chefs! Headquarters.

  • If cost is a concern, please contact Growing Chefs! We offer subsidies whenever possible

Please note: Growing Chefs! is currently working towards converting our Headquarters into a fully accessible space. If accessibility is a concern, please contact us for more information and alternatives.
