Chef Contribution Tiers

HOST COOKING CLASSES FOR OUR SPROUTING CHEFS!


Are you a chef? Do you want to support your community? Do you like to educate? Do you want to get your name out there?

You’ve come to the right place. Sprouts Cooking Club has numerous opportunities year-round to get involved with our sprouting chefs. We host winter, spring, and summer camps, as well as special events throughout the year, and we rely on the generosity of our partner chefs to make it happen. 

You would be donating time, space, and/or ingredients— a big ask, we know. But in return, we offer some pretty sweet marketing for free, you build a relationship with an impactful community nonprofit, and you get to experience the satisfaction of passing on your expertise and passion to the next generation. Not a bad gig!

Check out our Chef Contribution Tiers below to learn more! We’re excited to work with you!
