Chef-led Experience with Chef James.
A simple meal can provide significant comfort for families after an exhausting day at the hospital. We invite you to visit us and prepare a hot, delicious dinner for our families with our amazingly talented chef, Chef James.
Experience the excitement of cooking with a professional chef, with the bonus of helping families in need. Whether you’re looking for a team-building activity for colleagues or a fun way to give back with friends and family, our chef-led experience with Chef James is a great way for groups to be part of our mission and serve families.
