San Diego's Cooks Confab is a group of San Diego's most innovative chefs sharing their culinary talents with San Diegans by hosting educational events, stylishly fun dinner parties and smaller-scale gatherings with the goal to generate awareness on important food-related causes in our community today.
On April 3rd from noon to 4pm, Cooks Confab will host "School Lunch!" an event dedicated to raising awareness of the staggering epidemic of mediocre food being served in our schools.
Chefs of the Cooks Confab will partner with local farms, ranchers, fishers and artisans to serve Haute Cafeteria Style Cuisine (HCSC)™ at Fibonacci’s Campus Pointe Bistro, by Waters. They will showcase healthy “School Lunch” options designed to spark critical discussion about an issue that needs immediate attention from not only the San Diego community but communities across the country.
You'll hear from school administrators, cafeteria staff and farmers who are collaborating to create a farm-to-school movement. As Cooks Confab co-founder, Andrew Spurgin, says, “Only through educational outreach, mutual partnership with all the stakeholders of this broken system will real change for our children’s good be accomplished."
