The Natural Chef Café is operated by students within the Hospitality and Culinary Arts department.
We are the only Farm to Table Culinary program in the state.
We offer locally grown foods prepared fresh and with sustainable practices.
We support local farmers for meats and produce. In addition, we never use bleached flours, sugars, or gmo foods.
We are not 100% organic; however we use organic products throughout our operations when possible and purchase from organic practicing farmers.
All fees collected for foods are used to replenish our pantry and keep our program operating. Our prices are based on the cost of goods used to prepare the meal.
