We want to reach as many people as possible, while staying consistent with our values. Sometimes, we work with select sponsors in order to further our mission. Their participation helps us reach more people: classes for groups that otherwise could not afford it, speaking at conferences, and our Chefs Move to Schools initiative.
We promote the preparation of healthy food for everyone. As a certified Green Business, we encourage our clients to use organic, local, minimally processed foods whenever possible. In order to further our mission, we choose to work with sponsors that share our core beliefs.
Our standards for all sponsors include:
- We will not accept corporate sponsorships for companies and products related to: alcohol, pharmaceuticals, tobacco, weight loss, weapons, gambling, unsafe cosmetics, or check cashing services.
- When possible, we will give preference to companies that reveal a social mission, support environmental stewardship and sustainability, and use organic ingredients.
- We will always disclose that a given company is a sponsor if they are mentioned in any of our programs or materials.
