Communities Are Our Foundation
The Snapchef Foundation is united with communities to continue the rich history of events that are central to cultures and values. Our Snapchef family of culinary workers are members of these communities and are eager to volunteer to celebrate with their neighbors and be a voice for opportunity and growth.
Communities and police gather to build relationships and express appreciation for efforts to create safe and healthy neighborhoods. Masters of barbecue, ice cream, and cotton candy, Snapchef is always game-on to team with its neighbors. Snapchefs donning chef coats, bright green aprons, and confidence inspire many to seek this opportunity in their own backyard.
World’s Largest Pancake Breakfast
Thousands throughout Western Massachusetts converge on Springfield for the granddaddy of breakfast celebrations. Also stacked up along Main Street are the National Guard, several TV stations, community organizations, and of course Miss Western Massachusetts. Mayor Domenic Sarno presented Snapchef with the Golden Spatula Award for skillfully flipping the flapjacks. Truly the Spirit of Springfield!
When the Mayor on Main Trolley Tour rolled by Four Corners, Mayor Marty Walsh hopped off to present Snapchef with the 2019 Business of the Year Award. Its recognition for the Snapchef community spirit, like the day our Snapchef culinary trainees joined our neighbors at Mother’s Rest Park and brought along tons of fresh cookies to sweeten the smiles during face painting. A great family-friendly time!
Snapchef expanded its effort to address food insecurity and wellness with a team of Snapchef volunteers delivering meals to homes throughout Greater Worcester. We are so proud of our frontline workforce that care for seniors who have contributed to the greater good in our communities for so many years. We are proud to support the Meals on Wheels organization!
The GBFB and the Snapchef Foundation partnership achieves sustenance and free culinary training for our communities. Trainees are fueled with passion for cooking and to pay it forward. We know this to be true by the number of times we each volunteer at the GBFB. Food donations go further than you think!
City of Providence Healthy Communities Office
Essential community meal demands triggered a partnership between HCO and the Snapchef Foundation. Snapchef immediately channeled resources to create 600 nutritious daily meals. Ellen Cynar, HCO Director, skillfully coordinated meal placement throughout Greater Providence. “We have seen an outpouring of support from businesses small and large, all finding unique ways to support their neighbors during a difficult time.” – Mayor Jorge Elorza, Providence.
Springfield Jazz & Roots Festival
Supporting this downtown cultural event with our Snapchef team connects us with thousands from our community in celebration of the arts, culture, and diversity. “JazzFest has become the city’s signature cultural event, bringing thousands of people together in our vibrant downtown to celebrate Springfields’ diversity.” – Mayor Domenic Sarno
When our community educator needed to distribute 36 Chromebooks across Greater Boston for their students to have access to distance learning, the Snapchef Foundation was quick to answer the call. We satisfied a subsequent request for food delivery to students. Pandemic or not, we are in this together!
