Research shows that food literacy and cooking-based education:

  • Improves academic performance, especially in areas of math and science,
  • Improves student attitudes towards learning,
  • Helps to increase attention span, and
  • Helps to improve standardized test results.

Your donation will:

  • Give children hands-on experience growing their own food,
  • Help improve children’s eating habits to reduce childhood disease and obesity,
  • Help children understand the connection between food and their communities,
  • Give children basic cooking skills to share with their families,
  • Connect local chefs and restaurant staff with the community, and
  • Bring important food education programming into more London classrooms.

It’s community members like you that play a huge part in us being able to keep our cooking programs accessible to local children and youth. With this in mind, we hope that you might consider us for your personal giving this year.

Would you like to learn more? Take a peek at last year’s Annual Report to discover what community contributions, like yours, make possible and to help us reach even more children next year! 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Paige Downey, Fund Development Assistant, at: paige@​growingchefsontario.​ca

Thank you so much for your support, and happy cooking!
