Do you have a passion for food? Do you enjoy community outreach? Ever thought about becoming a Community Chef?

The Northeast Brooklyn Housing Development Corporation is offering Community Chef trainings for residents of the Bedford Stuyvesant neighborhood. This a great opportunity for residents to do something they love while allowing them an opportunity to give back to their community by providing tastier and healthier ways to eat. The best part is you get paid for it!

The community chef trainings teach basic nutrition, recipe selection and creation, knife skills, and so much more. Once trained, community chefs will be able to work throughout Bed-Stuy at various community events. Chefs will receive a $150 stipend per 2-hour cooking demonstration.
