The Culinary Trust provides grants for culinary professionals volunteering in schools.

Winners of the April 15 round will be announced on May 22, 2012. Stay tuned for our next application deadline.

The California Table Grape Commission is the founding sponsor of The Culinary Trust’s Chefs Move to Schools Grant.

The Chefs Move to Schools Grant provides funds for culinary professionals to help our children eat right by teaching them about food, nutrition and cooking. Funds can be used from garden to table and culinary professionals may seek funding for any program that promotes health and wellness in schools. For example, the grant may be used to plant a garden, teach a class, promote or create a wellness program for students or parents or assist in creating a school curriculum that focuses on healthy eating. In order to qualify the grant applicant must have the support of the school principal and, in some cases, additional school personnel. Title I schools will be given preference.

This grant is designed to support volunteer efforts by culinary professionals in public schools that serve children living at or below the poverty level. Awards up to $3000 support these efforts and are intended to defray a wide range of expenses, including food costs, garden supplies, educational materials, and other out-of-pocket costs for volunteers.


Culinary professionals seeking to implement projects in a public schools may seek funding from The Culinary Trust by downloading and completing the application and submitting with required attachments by email to or by regular mail the to:
