CHEFS TABLE FOUNDATION

Our Mission

Support the Chefs Table Foundation Educational Videos

Proceeds benefit Chefs Table Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit video production organization that provides educational cooking shows and offers culinary scholarships to underprivileged veterans and young adults.

Chefs Table Foundation (CTF), is seeking funding to implement a new series of culinary focused educational video programs addressing childhood obesity that adversely effects about 12.7 million children and adolescents in the United States.  CTF currently produces programs under the name The Chefs’ Table Series®  and Vegetarian Spice that are shown weekly on community access television stations across Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire as well as on YouTube and Vimeo.  The program has a current reach of 3 million potential viewers, shown on over 100 stations . Since 2012 The Chefs’ Table Series® show has showcased over 150 programs featuring local chefs, beverages, exercise, nutrition and recipes. The show is generally filmed during live demonstrations at a wide variety of restaurants and culinary locations.  An example can be found here https://vimeo.com/chefstableseries.


CTF has chosen to focus on a new series about childhood obesity because of the overwhelming need to tackle this public health issue with entertaining and educational videos, working with local health, school and other  professionals* to highlight healthy food choices and recipes, along with nutrition and exercise.    According to the CDC, "the most successful approaches are often comprehensive, localized, 'place-based' efforts — where leaders  and members of a community build partnerships".

CTF is planning a series of half hour shows (up to 42) to be aired weekly that will offer local expert advice and demonstrations specific to helping parents, children and professionals learn new ways to live healthy lifestyles. Each week would tackle a different food group with a cooking/recipe demo and explain nutrition benefits of that particular food along with a daily exercise routine or tip to keep kids moving.  CTF believes that we can make a major contribution to helping to address this public health issue in a very visual and widely accepted format that has a potential household reach of 4 million on television alone.

Conceptualized in 2012, Chefs Table Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit video production organization that produces educational and informative cooking shows. The Foundation is dedicated to supporting homeless U.S. Veterans and underprivileged youths with a culinary scholarship to The Salvation Army Kroc Corps Community Center based in Boston. Our hope is that this education will promote self-sufficiency, empowering our candidates to achieve their full potential and re-enter the workforce.
