Inspiring Love For Good Food

Sprouts Cooking Club empowers youth from all backgrounds to eat and live sustainably by teaching them how to cook healthy meals for themselves and their families.


Sprouts empowers youth from all backgrounds to live healthier lives through 3 culinary programs:

Chef-in-Training Program
A 6-month culinary, vocational training program for underserved youth ages 16-24 where interns develop the essential skills needed to secure and maintain a job in the modern restaurant industry.

In-Restaurant Cooking Classes and Camps
Subsidized and free classes for diverse children, 7-12, in the Bay Area, NYC, and Paris. 

After School Cooking Classes
Subsidized classes at Bay Area public and Title 1 elementary schools that teach nutritional basics, sugar awareness, and cooking skills.


Gibson’s kitchen crew will teach the basics of cooking in a professional kitchen, from savory plates to desserts to hand-crafted sodas. The kids will even get to prepare staff meal for the kitchen crew and hotel management. For the more adventurous chefs, an optional butchery course will be available. But that’s not it! Throughout the week, youth will work with the kitchen crew to design a lunch program for the restaurant. They’ll even learn how to design a successful marketing campaign, replete with a food photography crash course! They will test and create lunch recipes, design a logo, and write the menu!




Sprouts runs subsidized cooking classes and camps for youth of all socioeconomic backgrounds that take place right inside restaurants, farms, and gardens. Classes are led by real chefs, farmers, and nutritional experts.


The Chef-in-Training Program gives underserved young adults the chance to change their lives by training them to become chefs. Chef-in-Training interns spend six months with a local mentor chef learning everything they need to be able to land a job in the restaurant industry.


All year long, we give free classes and scholarships to children in need from the Bay-Area. Scholarships provide all children with the opportunity to learn how important real food is, hands-on, alongside real chefs. Help us make a difference! Volunteer at a class or apply for an internship, buy a class for a child in need or help sponsor a Chef-in-Training, there are many ways to get involved alongside us!



“There is no better way of caring than preparing meals and sharing. It is one of the pillars of humanity. The Sprouts Cooking Club experience leaves a lasting positive impression on the most impressionable of us – children. Good nutrition is a form of self-respect. Culinary skills promote pride and confidence and could even lead to a career.”

“I can’t think of a better way to invest in everyone’s future, than by investing in the training of youth to become the thoughtful leaders and productive workers of tomorrow.”
