Founded in 2004 – by Karla Lacey, the program has a humble beginning in the city of Sacramento, CA. Mrs. Lacey noticed an unusual trend that seemed to be hiding in plain sight. In spite of the great state of the local agricultural scene – in Sacramento – there was still an inconceivable amount of youth plagued with diabetes, obesity and other food related challenges. We here at BHI have seen the same trend within our young people on the island.
Jr Chef Central provides kids – ages 10-15 – with the skills and knowledge to prepare healthy meals while learning that healthy cooking can be tasteful and enjoyable. The program builds a solid culinary foundation that includes nutritional facts and table etiquette that allows students to be knowledgeable on food they prepared as well as how to conduct themselves accordingly in a dining setting.
Jr Chef Central Bermuda program list includes:
- Jr Chef Central Camp – Basic
