About the Chef Ann Foundation

Our mission is to provide school communities with the tools, training, resources, and funding that enables them to create healthier food and redefine lunchroom environments. Founded in 2009 by Chef Ann Cooper, the Chef Ann Foundation (CAF) carries out our vision by actively supporting school districts nationwide through grant programs and by providing tried and tested tools for school food change. Our major programs include:

  • Get Schools Cooking (GSC) is an intensive 3-year assessment and strategic planning program that provides schools with the operational knowledge to transition from a heat & serve to scratch cook operational model.
  • Salad Bars to Schools (SB2S) is a granting program that provides schools and districts with salad bar equipment and support, such as Cambro bars, camchillers, and technical assistance.
  • School Food Institute (SFI) is a set of online courses that provide professional development and comprehensive training on the key components of successful scratch-cook operations in schools.
  • The Lunch Box (TLB) is an online toolkit that provides free step-by-step guides, tools, recipes and other resources to help schools improve their meal programs and convert to scratch-cooking.

At the Chef Ann Foundation, our work to ensure access to fresh, healthy school food for all is built on the idea of equity. We support and celebrate difference, and our team and community are stronger with every new voice. CAF is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace.
