The Charitable Chef

Looking forward to getting outdoors this summer? The Charitable Chef ‘Summer Kit Series’ takes the event off of Zoom and out to backyards, decks and grills.  

3 crafted summer kits highlight York Region’s seasonal foods, with curated playlists. Each kit includes a meal for one including a seasonal preserve, appetiser, main course and dessert.  

A summer cocktail or beer pairing can be selected to round out the meal. Interested in making your own preserves for later? Order a preserve kit for ingredients and instructions to complete at home.  

Summer Starter Picnic Kit – June 22 -24 

Summer Grilling Kit – July 20 – 22 

Reap the Harvest Kit – August 23 – 25 – Plant based menu

Proceeds from the Charitable Chef go to support York Region Food Network’s food security initiatives in our community. Find out more at
