What does it mean to be of “the best service” to the community?

How can TCC be of “the best service”?

How can we build bridges with allies in the for- and non-profit worlds who believe the necessary work we need to do in order to best support the wellness of our youth?

After successfully finishing the 2015-2016 school year at Grant, Milwaukie and Meek High Schools, we’re working to analyze 600+ pre- and post- surveys to relay the impact of our work.

Of course, we’re also thinking about programming for the upcoming school year, and the many dollars we will need to raise to serve the schools who are interested in our programming.

There is a bit of dreaming, some scheming, but mostly, a continued looking in to determine the best ways we can empower youth with the essential culinary skills and basic food literacy they deserve as a part of their high school experience.


National Recognition Sure is Nice

Over the past months we have been working with the National Farm to School Network towards a blog entry focused on The Curriculum of Cuisine. March proved to be the right fit as Farm to School is focused on nutrition during this month, and TCC provides students the skills they need to make nutritious choices. Here’s the story!

We are honored to be featured on this national site, and hope you will share this story with your networks. As ever, TCC is always looking for opportunities relative to  partnership and collaboration. We know that we can create greater impact for our youth when work together; let’s connect: maggie@thecurriculumofcuisine.org.

Huge thanks to Lisa with Chefstable who helped get those cute Curriculum of Cuisine postcards into napkin-holders and all the folks connected

 

We are tickled pig (ha, ha, ha, sorry, we couldn’t resist) to be  chosen as this month’s charity for Lardo’s Chefwich.

Not familiar with the Chefwich? Here’s the deal, good-guy Lardo owner Rick Gencarelli calls on a local chef to create a sandwich special. Proceeds from that sandwich are donated to a local non-profit.

If you haven’t been to a Lardo location since April 16th, you’ve been missing out on Jason French’s  delicious Chefwich. The good news is, you still have over one week to get in on the goodness and support us in bringing essential culinary education back into high schools!
