Chef Jodi loves giving back to the community any way she can, so what better way to spend Valentine’s Day than at one of her favorite local non-profits, Kitchens for Good! Fittingly, she returned as one of their volunteer guest chefs to teach a chocolate class!
The group worked together to make Chef Jodi’s delicious Chocolate Roulade, Chocolate Bark with dried fruit and nuts, Chocolate-dipped Strawberries, as well as Chocolate Earthquake Cookies.
“The work the Kitchens for Good does for our community is nothing short of remarkable!” said Chef Jodi. “It’s so inspiring to guide these folks on a new life’s journey – I can’t wait for my next class!”
About Kitchens for Good:
Kitchens for Good was founded to provide workplace training, healthy food production and hunger relief to those in San Diego. It works to bridge the gap between wasted food and hunger by rescuing surplus and cosmetically imperfect food from wholesalers and farmers and engages students in a culinary apprenticeship program to transform those ingredients into nutritious meals for hungry families. The apprenticeship program lasts 12 weeks and specifically selects those individuals who are struggling with addiction, homelessness and/or unemployment. Through the power of cooking, these students are given stability, employment and a brighter future, and their hard work in the kitchen helps provide over 50,000 nutritious meals to hungry families in the San Diego area.
