Chefs Collaborative is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and all gifts are tax deductible.
How to get involved:
How you participate is up to you! You can choose between ongoing campaigns and one-time events, and we will provide resources to help you through the process – an Overview of participant responsibilities and organizational support is available here.
- Ongoing Campaigns: examples include menus charges, guest add-ons after tip, donating a portion of your proceeds during a particular month, etc. These are super easy ways to contribute to our mission while raising awareness, and it adds up quickly! Read below for a Good Food Fund success story:
“As an organization, Grand Central Bakery is delighted to support Chefs Collaborative. We promised a portion of proceeds from every tomato-based sandwich or tomato slice add-on through Labor Day – we sold over 10,000 sandwiches!
Your organization changed our views about what was possible with local sourcing. Specifically, a speaker at a Chefs Collaborative event convinced us that we could (and should) shift to a seasonal menu in our quick-service cafés. It started with local tomatoes, and since then, we’ve created the infrastructure and systems to work with local farmers in all areas of our company – produce, meat, even flour. Now, our responsible sourcing helps differentiate us as a bakery and is a central part of our brand and our company mission.”
2. One-Time Events: celebrate your commitment to Good Food and help raise awareness about your work with Chefs Collaborative in your community through a one-time event such as a sit-down dinner, special lunch, or walk-about tasting. The goal of these events is to inspire fellow chefs as well as the greater public to get involved in Changing Menus, Changing Lives.
