The mission of the Quillisascut Education Fund (QEF) is to promote sustainability in the kitchen through education. QEF does this by offering scholarships towards professional development training for students and members of the food industry.

QEF is managed by an all volunteer board of directors who offer guidance and support for programs that promote sustainable methods, offer scholarships for farm to table training and sponsors fundraisers to provide these programs.

QEF’s goal is to inspire change through simple everyday steps and actions. We do this by facilitating professional development in educational farm to table programs.

As a young chef my time at Quillisascut changed my life. It gave me the experience to base my philosophy of food on tangible processes that empower the cook as an artisan.
