Welcome to Growing Chefs! Ontario Headquarters in the former Auberge du Petit Prince Restaurant at 460 King St. London.
Growing Chefs! HQ is first and foremost a non-profit food education facility. We are working to build a flagship location for food education in the province - an innovative and collaborative space in which food literacy providers, community agencies and members can come together. It will address the growing need for food education in the London community, through development and expansion of Growing Chefs! programming.
Growing Chefs! Ontario is a registered non-profit and charity, but we believe that doing good work and good business are synonymous. Our programs and services are a social enterprise model, meaning that we apply commercial strategies to maximize improvements in human and environmental wellbeing.
Besides hosting food education programs, Growing Chefs! HQ also hosts exceptional monthly and special events, and our incredible venue and formidable chefs are available for private bookings.
All proceeds from our special events will directly fund our food education programs at Growing Chefs! HQ and in the community.
Our new space is fantastically versatile and would be a wonderful location for your next event! Our prices are fair, we pay our staff a living wage and we are happy to provide additional discounts to other local or community non-profits. It doesn’t get any more socially responsible than this! This is truly a space that gives back and one that everyone will feel good about using.
We may be a small non-profit organization but we are striving for big community impact!
Come, take a look inside, and imagine the possibilities!
From all of us at the Growing Chefs! Ontario team!
