La Tablée des Chefs Teaches Kids About Nutrition While Feeding the Homele

— March 21, 2012 — Social Good
La Tablée des Chefs is a social enterprise based in Quebec, Canada that educates youth on healthy eating while at the same time redistributing leftover food to local underserved communities.

The company was founded by Ashoka Fellow Jean-Francois Archambault who wanted to combat two social issues pertaining to food, so created the program in partnership with local schools and food banks.

La Tablée des Chefs runs a brokerage service for sustainable food and offers cooking schools, camps and workshops. They also frequently organize empowering campaigns and events. This month they are getting 600 students from 13 hotel schools to cook 100,000 meatball and vegetable meals, which are served through the Québec Food Bank.

“Jean-François is fighting hunger and nutritional deficiencies by creating avenues for chefs to address social and environmental issues in their work,” Ashoka explains. "Chefs have the ability to increase the culinary opportunities of at-risk populations and decrease the number of people going hungry by linking the food industry to food banks, citizen organizations and their constituencies.”
