We Believe in Healthy School Food

The Chef Ann Foundation is dedicated to promoting whole-ingredient, scratch-cooking in schools. Scratch-cooking enables schools to serve the healthiest, tastiest meals so that kids are well-nourished and ready to learn.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we work with both public and private schools in all 50 states. Founded in 2009 by Chef Ann Cooper, we recently celebrated 10 years of making a difference. Our programs provide school districts with grant funds, salad bars, assessments, professional development, and free tools and resources.
