Cooking for a Cause

Cooking for a Cause (3)

Put your culinary skills to work in your community.

It's time to cook for a cause. There are many ways culinary professionals and people that love to cook can lend their skills and passion to a good cause.

Kent Whitaker's Cooking for a Cause is a grass roots effort to collect and provide information on how chefs, cooks, bakers, dietitians, food service workers, retired military cooks, kitchen managers, front end personnel and more can help out in the community.

The list is ever growing, so check back often for updates and new ideas.

NAVY Adopt a Ship Program

The Deck is proud to help spread the word of this wonderful program known as the NAVY Adopt a Ship Program. The Adopt a Ship program began as a partnership between Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) and the American Culinary Federation (ACF), in 1998, to provide continuing education to the Culinary Specialist (CS) who may otherwise not have had the opportunity to experience industry practices. Adopt a Ship is open to all culinarians, regardless of association affiliation, that have the desire to share their experiences, knowledge and skills with the CSs.
