Become a Kensington Teen Battle Chef!

Become a Kensington Teen Battle Chef!

Are you a high school freshman, sophomore, or junior with leadership ability and a desire to learn more about healthy cooking? Know someone who is? The Kensington Teen Battle Chef program is for you!

In partnership with GrowNYC’s Youthmarket and the non-profit organization Family Cook Productions, my office will be bringing a youth-run farm stand to Fort Hamilton Parkway between East 4th Street and East 5th Street this summer.

The farm stand will operate every Saturday from July 9th to October 29th, with 6 students paid $10 an hour to run the stand during that time period. Before becoming Youthmarket employees, students will receive training through Family Cook Productions’ Teen Battle Chef program. Teen Battle Chef empowers youth to challenge themselves, develop leadership, teamwork and culinary skills as well as gain nutrition knowledge and a new appreciation for diverse, healthy and sustainably-produced food. After 8 weeks of unpaid training, youth involved in the program will become Teen Battle Chefs, and will begin their paid work at the Youth Market.

If you're interested in participating, or know someone who might be, please apply (an electronic version of the application is at the bottom of this page). If you have any questions, call Jessica Turner at 718-499-1090 or email kensingtonteenbattlechef [at] gmail [dot] com.
