Overview:

Are you a local chef or food expert looking to work with youth?

Brainfood is a non-profit youth development organization in Washington, DC. Using food as a tool, Brainfood builds life skills and promotes healthy living in a fun and safe environment. Local high school students participate in our programs either twice a week after school or every day for six weeks during the summer.

Activities include hands-on cooking classes, lectures, field trips and community service projects. Brainfood graduates are equipped with practical cooking skills, an introduction to the food industry, a framework for nutritious eating, and leadership experience that prepares them to make a difference in their community.

Brainfood welcomes guest chefs and guest speakers into our kitchens to lead a class about a topic or food they love. Guest chefs provide Brainfood participants the chance to learn from an expert who is working in the food or nutrition industry. Some of the topics that guest chefs have taught our participants include basic knife skills, how to make risotto, cake decorating, and ways to cook healthy alternatives to favorite holiday foods. Guest chefs typically bring in some or all of the special ingredients they will be working with.

Guest chefs and guest speakers are needed for both the Brainfood After School program (Monday – Thursday, 4:00pm – 6:30pm) and the Brainfood Summer Institute (Monday – Friday, 1:00pm – 4:00pm).
