Charitable Giving Partnerships

Over the last 15 years, Santa Fe Wine & Chile’s Live Auction has raised more than $250,000 for Santa Fe’s Cooking with Kids organization. Cooking with Kids educates and empowers children and families to make healthy food choices through hands-on nutrition education with fresh, affordable foods. For more than ten years, Santa Fe’s world-class chefs have been rolling up their sleeves as volunteer Superchefs for Cooking with Kids, teaching Santa Fe public schoolkids about the joys of cooking—and eating—real food. Now with more than 30 participating local chefs, the Superchefs program has become an integral part of Cooking with Kids, a local non-profit that, since 1995, has nurtured generations of students through rich, unique hands-on nutrition education. “The Superchefs are like rock stars for the kids,” says Cooking with Kids Executive Director Anna Farrier, who cooked up the idea for the program. “Of course, our students love to watch a super speedy knife demo, but more importantly, these chefs help bring home the message of healthy eating and cooking. These are pivotal experiences for our youth, helping to establish lifelong habits—and even career aspirations—in countless students.” Not only do Superchefs volunteer in classrooms, but they also donate their time and talent to champion the growing efforts of public-school cafeterias to use local food and cook from scratch.
