Align with Cooks Who Care as we stand up to support the health of F & B professionals. As your well-being concierge, we want to connect you affordable health care options and wellness vendors/speakers who understand your unique challenges; yoga/meditation experts, fitness instructors, nutrition experts, financial advisors, and more to provide sustainable support.
As chefs and food and beverage professionals ourselves, we know how hard it is to stay afloat and healthy in this industry. Our interactive community consists of food industry peers, food/stress relief, and financial experts who share resources and solutions to support you.
Largely a volunteer organization, any contributions made during COVID-19 we will hire 2-3 freelance workers (out-of-work) to help us research pandemic resources for employers and employees and help us create a Toolkit Post-COVID to design a new landscape for the Food & Beverage industry.
Cooks Who Care is a community-minded food industry group working to develop a supportive network for forward-thinking food and beverage leaders. Founded by cooks who really do care, we are starting in our hometown of Philadelphia, with the goal of growing our social impact, collective nationally.
The food industry is outdated and needs an overhaul. We activate our shared energy by organizing out-of-the-box experiences to showcase new opportunities to grow personally and professionally within a diverse and ever-changing workforce through prioritizing well-being.
We have partnered with My Benefit Advisor to develop an exclusive Employee Benefits and Insurance Program for Cooks Who Care members and their employees! Yes, you read that right! Coming in 2020, you will be able to get affordable health insurance for yourself and your staff through Cooks Who Care.
As your Well-Being Concierge, our goal is to improve culture norms in our industry fostering healthy lifestyles, providing community resources to build career longevity, and by creating a positive vision of the food industry as a profession, not just a job. We drive change by collaborating with community partners who share our passion for a sustainable future.
