Founded in the Bay Area in 2012, the Sam Vincent Foundation was created to support culinary training programs designed to offer unique learning opportunities for at risk youth. Your donations are greatly appreciated.
Sam was passionate about cooking from a very young age and pursued his passion with great purpose and focus. He also loved playing music and traveling.
Founded in 2012, the Sam Vincent Foundation was created to support culinary training programs designed to offer unique learning opportunities to youth seeking a chance to discover and explore their inherent brilliance and passion in a safe and nurturing environment. Based in the Bay area, we seek to inspire at-risk youth by providing them with an environment that recognizes and celebrates their individuality while building a positive self image. These programs will be led by experts in the culinary arts dedicated to providing the necessary skills and confidence that will prepare students to succeed in the culinary world and beyond.
The Sam Vincent Foundation was created to achieve these goals by giving grants to established youth culinary arts non-profits and establishing its own training program to be taught by some of the best culinary instructors in the Bay area. The programs which our Foundation gives grants, as well as our own future program will seek not only to teach professional level skills in the preparation of fresh, healthy food but also to prepare its students to successfully enter the culinary workplace with a strong sense of purpose and confidence.
Our Sam Vincent Foundation Culinary Inspiration For Youth classes are designed to inspire youth in the culinary arts as well as to provide a safe, encouraging environment for the youth to build confidence in themselves and their new acquired skills.
100% of your generous donations goes to paying for culinary tools, the youth’s Chef attire, fresh, organic ingredients and our kitchen rental.
Our mission is to reach as many at-risk youth of the East Bay with our unique Culinary Inspiration For Youth programs!
