B3 was deeply involved in the local community on Maui, Betty is looking forward to creating new and lasting ties in the Mission Valley / Flathead Lake community in Montana. Chef Betty was fortunate to teach heart healthy cooking techniques to the 5th graders in her community with the program “KIDS COOK WITH HEART”. Betty was also apart of local chefs that cook monthly meals for the kids at the local Boys and Girls Club.
This is the type outreach Betty would like to continue in her new home. “It’s humbling to be apart of the program. The gratitude and excitement from the kids is overwhelming and powerful. It’s so special that simple desserts from the local bakery and can do so much good!”
Betty was also honored to bake for fundraisers supporting her local food bank, culinary school, and a host of other local organizations.
Through out the school year, Chef Betty taught 5th graders at a local elementary school healthy options for cooking at home. This instills a sense of pride and ownership in the kids daily meals. It also gets them excited for cooking in general and especially healthy cooking and eating! The kids enthusiasm for learning new life skills such how to use a REAL chef’s knife is contagious. The kids even get their parents excited.
