Coming Soon…the 2013 Southern Chefs Series Lineup Announcement
Written by Marie Nygren, Posted in Southern Chefs Series, Wholesome Wave, Wholesome Wave Georgia
I’m excited to announce that the 2013 Southern Chefs Series has been greatly expanded from six to twelve chefs…that’s twice the fun and a year’s-worth of great cooking and eating in my kitchen.
Additionally, the proceeds from the 2013 series are earmarked for a seed fund to help establish Wholesome Wave chapters in our neighboring Southern states. It’s been a privilege and honor to partner with remarkable chefs at the Southern Chefs Potluck, Wholesome Wave Georgia’s fabulous fundraiser event held at Serenbe. The opportunity to help the parent organization, Wholesome Wave, set up chapters elsewhere in the South is exciting.
Wholesome Wave’s mission is to improve access and affordability of fresh, healthy, locally grown produce to historically underserved communities. Doing so creates economic viability through local food commerce that can rebuild our nation’s food system. Wholesome Wave, a national 501(c)3 organization, partners with farm-to-retail venues, community leaders, healthcare providers, like-minded nonprofits and government entities to implement programs that benefit both consumers in underserved communities and the farmers who provide for them. Every nutrition benefit dollar spent at a Wholesome Wave partner market becomes two dollars for the shopper and the farmer.
Stay tuned for more on the series, including the exciting lineup of stellar Southern chefs and their respective class dates. Registration will be open soon. Classes are limited to 10 people and fill quickly.
