JUF teamed with Knowledge Quest, a nonprofit founded in 1998 serving the children of South Memphis, to teach basic and lifelong cooking skills to the children participating in the program. Many of these children are responsible for their own meals. In addition to teaching culinary and business skills, the program helps to build confidence and whet appetites for wholesome, healthy food.
Led by Chef Aryen Moore-Alston, the 2015-2016 class won over $40,000 in scholarships at the 2016 ProStart Invitational. We're so excited to see how this program continues to grow!
