“As a recipient of the Support a Student Chef award I can testify to the value of this program. The bursary I received went a long way toward relieving some of our financial stress. My dream is to one day be a food writer, specifically writing a food blog and hopefully cookbooks. I’m so thankful to have received the Support a Student Chef award; by supporting me through Chefs School. I have been brought that much closer to realizing my goals.”
