Brigaid provides each partner district with ambitious, hardworking chefs who have been selected and trained specifically to work in schools. Brigaid supports chefs with the resources and tools needed to effectively train each school food team in a district. Our chefs focus on teaching the fundamentals to pave the way for the use of whole foods. Before considering the benefits of scratch cooking we believe schools need strong foundations built on clean, well equipped kitchens with highly trained staff capable of handling raw ingredients and maintaining the highest safety and quality standards.
The training program covers 6 full-service kitchens per school year, costing $18,000 per school. Our chefs will train with each school staff for over 200 hours without disrupting the flow of each day’s work. This on-the-job training allows your staff to see firsthand how they can integrate these new skills and standards into their typical work day.
