Cook Culture supports and sponsors local and national programs. We believe that being well comes from eating well and having strong ties with your community.
We only consider supporting organisations that promote growing/raising food and the production of local food, and contribute to and/or protect local land for food security.
|Chef Bell's goal is to engage his peers, chefs, in communities, regions and provinces Coast to Coast to Coast through education and awareness for the future of sustainable seafood. To create a movement which, within in the next 10 years, allows every Canadian to easily and readily access sustainable seafood for themselves and their families. The hope is that as the sustainable seafood movement continues to grow, environmentally responsible procedures will become firmly rooted as standard methods in future generations.|
|Earth Bites was founded by the Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co. in 2007 in order to help connect kids with their food, because they believe teaching future generations about local food growth & nutrition is essential to creating sustainable food systems. They are offering informative cooking & gardening classes for adults and 100% of the profits will go to EarthBites -- connecting more kids with their food.|
