Chef Works chose to partner with Josh Kimble and his program because of the simple fact that we can see, feel, and embrace the vision he has created right here in San Diego - our home. Many of us at Chef Works have children that have been, are currently, or will be faced with difficult challenges as they grow up in a world that continues to complicate itself with the advancement of technology. Technology is both a blessing and a curse. Right now, we are witnessing the erosion of trade professions. Those trade professions - cobblers, farmers, metal smiths, glass blowers, chefs, servers, etc. are what made America one of the greatest countries in the world. Our youth, no matter what background and upbringing, face tremendous temptation to take the easy road, which is not necessarily the right road.
Josh's program allows these young adults to see and experience the pride in doing a good job from start to finish. Whether it's growing the crops used to feed a homeless shelter, or cooking for a group of reserved seats for a sit-down dinner, he's showing them, first hand, that work isn't something that has to be a survival mechanism only - work can be fun, rewarding, and meaningful no matter what they choose to do. He's building character on foundational morals that will serve these young men and women for the rest of their lives - a foundation that was not given them, or was lost along the way. If that's not a case worth putting a multi-million dollar company behind, then I don't know what is.
