Future Chefs is a tribute to and in memory of Cindi Nikodym. Cindi was a wife, mother and grandmother who’s greatest joy was spending time with her family. Cindi loved to cook and knew that good food brought her family together, not only to nourish their bodies, but create life                                                                                                                                                      

                            long memories of simply being together.


                            Future Chefs teaches youth about kitchen basics and              

                            beyond. This culinary course will also emphasize the

                            significance of the memories food can create.


                            Thank you to the family of Cindi Nikodym for  

                            supporting this program in her memory.
