Myers fuels youth foodservice!

“We have a long-standing commitment to serve our local and national communities. Worth Our Weight is a local success that brings new generations into food service and turns around lives! We are thrilled to support them.”- Rob Myers

With our contribution to Worth Our Weight we helped bring celebrity Peruvian chef Olenka Orjeda as guest chef in a fund raiser for WOW. Our contribution will enable WOW to host fund raising dinners throughout the year. Guests were treated to an evening of authentic Peruvian cuisine from Olenka who regaled with guests with hilarious stories of her homeland and relocation to the Wine Country of California. She recently starred on the Food Network’s “Chefs vs. Cons” television program. She is in high demand for her pop-up dinners and guest appearances. Learn more here: http://olenkacooks.com/

Worth Our Weight is a culinary skills program that enables “at-risk” youth to learn marketable skills while serving their community through the WOW kitchen and catering services. They have produced thousands of chefs who now work in the foodservice industry. Evelyn Cheatham is the executive director and spark plug for the exponential growth in the program.
