As our school grows, we intend for our partner list to grow.  We would like to especially thank everyone who has taken their time out to teach and reach our students and continue to do so.   Our partnership list is on a rolling basis.

The Trotter Project


The Trotter Project is Chef Charlie Trotter’s philosophical legacy. A philosophy which embodies the idea that excellence and purpose are best achieved through service to others. At The Trotter Project, we continue to offer that same opportunity. We open doors through education, mentorship, and the pursuit of excellence in the global culinary and hospitality industries. Our scholarships, summer camp, garden project, and culinary events all serve students who might not otherwise have these opportunities so that they may, in turn, serve a brighter future for both themselves, their communities, and the industry. 


Farm to Classroom

Charlie Trotter was a legendary inspiration to the American farm-to-table culinary movement, and we continue this work as we expand our farm-to-classroom efforts. We work to create productive vegetable garden outside of our schools and turn them into interactive classrooms. We have partnered with The Montessori School of Englewood on Chicago’s South Side, the University of Illinois Extension, Chicago Master Gardeners, and the Museum of Science and Industry on exciting educational p rograms that engage and inspire students while teaching them where their food comes from, how it’s grown, and how to prepare it."
