Cooking with Heart

Flavorful meals do not have to be expensive. That is why we are calling on all chefs to become a Chef Ambassador of our Cooking with Heart Program.

Moonstar Charitable is providing low-cost, nutritious meals to families and individuals who are struggling with financial stability. These recipients are equally deserving to taste our love for culinary excellence as those who could afford it. Showcase your culture or personality through your recipe and we will produce these meals in scale for recipients in our network.

We ask that our Chef Ambassadors prepare up to 5 recipes:

     – featuring chicken, pork, fish, beef, and vegetarian;

     – balanced meals (3 oz protein, 4 oz vegetable, 4 oz whole grain);

     – leverage high volume production techniques;

     – using common, inexpensive ingredients

As our appreciation, we will recognize and give credit to all of our Chef Ambassadors and their organizations on each meal served as well as on our website and affiliates’ channels.

Please complete our application form and submit it to our team via email: [email protected]
