Chef Testimonials

We are spreading the good news, using our skills to send forth an important message; that food brings people together, soothes the soul, and that it builds and rebuilds community.

[Viviana, Four-time Trip Participant]

I think for the people we worked with, the lasting impact is the message that they are not forgotten… that people care about them…that there is reason to hope.

When I discovered CulinaryCorps, my heart felt validated: there was something I could do to help; there was a way for me to live my dream of being a chef and help those most in need.

[Gary, April 2009]

I realize now that there are opportunities for greatness everywhere.  That in a small amount of time, a few people can make a great impact on many.

The CulinaryCorps experience filled my spirit.  It reconfirmed this thing I do – this cooking thing – is a very good thing.  It’s so basic, so primal, so comforting, so needed.

[Irma, June 2008]

I was scared to go on this trip. But I realized that my passion and dedication to food made all the difference.  That armed with only that, I could connect with everyone.

[April, March 2007]

It was probably the most challenging, intense, emotional, and rewarding experience I’ve ever had.

The practical help from people like you are what have kept us from falling apart.  Seeing that someone cares is balm for our hearts and spirits; it’s literally priceless. Bless you.

[Mary, New Orleans Resident]

Know that my life was changed when I met you and got involved with CulinaryCorps.  And I will continue to pay it forward.  Someday, I will tell you.
