Stirring Up Change In a Community Near You
Teen Battle Chef, is a program of FamilyCook Productions in over 75 schools and community sites across the U.S. Over half are sponsored in high schools by HealthCorps. This blog began in summer 2010 when FamilyCook invited NYC Teen Battle Chefs to participate in internships working with chefs in restaurants, teaching younger children cooking, growing food in food deserts, and cooking in farmers markets across 5 boroughs. In fall 2010, our program continues and thanks to Robin Quivers, her run in the NYC Marathon in November, will provide critical funding so our Teen Battle Chef programs in CT and in HealthCorps schools in NJ can experience these transformational internships as well.

HealthCorps Gala 2012
HealthCorps Students had a ball selling Salsa, serving Vietnamese spring rolls and sharing their experiences in Teen Battle Chef @Gala 2012!
Students prepping spring rolls in the Waldorf Astoria's kitchen!
"My experience at the Gala hosted at the Astoria Hotel, was just incredible! I honestly, received a preview of what I want my future to look like. Apart from that, I was honored to work side by side these other students whom I've just met the same day. Cooking is definitely something I'd love to pursue in the future. - Pastor Solano
Teens tabling and stealing the crowd!
"It was my first time actually participating at the Heath Corps Gala and it was amazing. Meeting new people, coming together with the other schools to prep/make the spring rolls and salsa, as well as help West Side High School sell their salsa in the TBC booth was an unforgettable experience. I would most defiantly volunteer for this event again or any other event Health Corps has planned. I really had a great time!"
