New York, NY -- The Nourishing Kitchen of New York City is the recipient of a grant from the Charitable Giving Committee of the New York Women’s Culinary Alliance. These funds will go directly to the 2010 Junior Chef Program, which takes disadvantaged youth ages 6-12 and teaches them how to make good choices through nutrition and the culinary arts.
“The Nourishing Kitchen is proud to have such a vibrant community supporting our Junior Chefs, we truly believe in their mission,” says Founder and Chef Gina Puzzanhgera. “100% of this donation will go directly to enhancing and expanding our Junior Chef Program.”
