A message from Growing Chefs!’ Volunteer Coordinator/Program Assistant Intern!
Hi! My name is Joei and I joined Growing Chefs! as the Volunteer Coordinator and Program Assistant Intern in January 2014! I look forward to contributing to the organization’s various events and programs this upcoming year.
After completing my double major in political science and psychology at the University of British Columbia, I explored many opportunities and the mission at Growing Chefs! was one I wanted to be part of. I was drawn to the organization’s values of prioritizing food as an essential part of living a healthy lifestyle and cannot wait to share this knowledge with children in local schools! I am thrilled to be a part of this amazing opportunity to reach out to kids and get them involved with local ingredients and healthy cooking. I’m also excited to see the culinary community all striving to achieve the goal of eating wholesome local foods.
While aiming to pursue a Master’s degree in International Relations within the coming years, my goal with Growing Chefs!is to see it accomplish its mission of educating kids and the community about sustainable food practices. I am excited to be plunging into volunteer and program coordination role and assisting the organization in any way possible. I cannot wait for what is to come!
