What Organizations Are Saying
Executive Director, Alameda Boys & Girls Club
The Chef-K Culinary Camp 4 Kids program delivered beyond our expectations! Laurie's easy-to-understand and fun curriculum focuses on nutrition, hygiene, safety, and basic food preparation and has increased participation at our club. Additionally, this program has stimulated interest from current and potential donors, while engaging our staff and enriching our members.

Executive Director, Boys Scouts of America
Laurie started a culinary venture scout crew (young men and women aged 14-21). I was very impressed with Ms. Zerga's professionalism and approach to culinary education and her positive, upbeat attitude.
Program Manager, School Health Department, San Francisco Unified School District
When I met Ms. Zerga, I knew she was the right candidate to help pilot our Chef in the Classroom program. The students, the staff at the site, and I were very happy to work with her; she's very professional and an obvious veteran in the field.
Central Nutrition Coordinator, San Francisco Unified School District
I am happy to say that Laurie Zerga's professional expertise has set the tone for how we set up the SFUSD Chef in the Classroom program. She was able to design friendly and interactive lessons to keep all of the elementary school students engaged while teaching the students about health and the culinary profession. We are very honored to be working with Ms. Zerga.
