VooDoo Chef Foundation
The VooDoo Chef Foundation was established in 2017 with roots dating as far back as 2002. The Foundation was created by VooDoo Chef Erik to make an impact on the youth by inspiring with food and promoting education to those who aspire to have careers in the Foodservice & Hospitality Industry. Our mission is to support our community through food and education by facilitating educational programs, helping students develop industry related skills, hosting charity VooDoo events and competitions, and providing equal opportunities to all students to those in need. We recognize the uniqueness and potential of all our students, and we inspire them to strive for excellence through food, education, and connection.
The VooDoo Foundation partners with schools, education programs, and local foodservice companies at all levels to promote continued education, develop industry related skills, and provide much needed scholarships to students looking to further their careers in the Foodservice & Hospitality Industry. It is our goal to provide much needed food and education opportunities to students in the Greater Tampa Bay area and beyond, especially to those who lack the support and resources they need to excel. The VooDoo Chef Foundation is driven to make a direct impact on the Foodservice & Hospitality Industry through our three pillars of belief – Our Passion, Our Hope, Our Future!
