What is the Good Food Fund Program?
You can feature the Good Food Fund in your restaurant or business this month or on an ongoing basis by donating a portion of the proceeds from a particular menu item(s), or a percentage of total sales, to the Good Food Fund. This is a super easy way to contribute to the movement for good food, and it adds up quickly.
100% of Good Food Fund Program proceeds fund Chefs Collaborative scholarship and education programs to help chefs learn about critical issues in our food system, take action, and receive future Scholarships. By supporting the Good Food Fund, you’re building a better food system.
Chefs Collaborative is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and all gifts are tax deductible.

Any Member of Chefs Collaborative can implement the Good Food Fund Program! The Good Food Fund Program are carried out in cities across the country, throughout the year. By implementing the Good Food Fund Program, you’re helping to do your part to inspire, educate, and celebrate chefs and food professionals building a better food system.

Change adds up! “I added $0.50 to every first and main course ordered in May 2015, and donate the proceeds to the Good Food Fund. In just 30 days, we raised over $3,000! I’m thrilled that I was able to create an easy and powerful way to contribute. It’s literally change for change. And it adds up. Fast. Join me!” – Chef and Board Member Derek Wagner, Nicks on Broadway, Providence.
It’s so easy, and important. “We donated $1.00 from the price of every Bristol Bay Sandwich sold this past summer, because chefs have been an important voice in protecting Bristol Bay, Alaska from the threat of the Pebble Mine. We raised over $3,000 from our Bristol Bay sandwich sales, and I was thrilled to find an easy way to give back and do our part to help create a better food system. We all have a role in promoting Good Food, and donating a portion of our sales is an easy and powerful way for my business to contribute.” – Chef and Board Member Piper Davis, Grand Central Bakery, Portland.
