New non-profit group helps Lengthy Seaside eating places, cooks | Nonprofit Organizations
Terri Henry, founder of Dine LBC – Moncton Restaurant Week, founded a nonprofit to help local chefs and their restaurants survive the coronavirus pandemic.
Moncton Food & Beverage’s first effort is a series of online cooking classes. Chefs teach classes on a private zoom platform, with each class costing $ 35 to $ 55. The income is shared between the chef and the non-profit organization to help cover operating costs. Classes start on Saturday 15th August.
Twelve chefs have signed up for the class so far, and more are being added, Henry said in a press release. Bartenders will be added soon to teach cocktail classes.
“We have been working on bringing this non-profit organization to market since the end of last year,” said Henry in the press releaseWhen COVID-19 hit, we like everyone else turned around and developed live streaming cooking classes so our chefs could keep doing what they did best and put some cash in their pockets during these challenging times. “
