  • We lost an amazing man on August 18, 2017 Chef Franco Buto. Franco passed away after his battle with an unforeseen major illness. His smile lit up the room. His quiet way of speaking commanded attention. He was full of ideas, and his food was simply divine. He cared about people, and always wanted to help change the world one meal, one kid, one idea at a time. Thank you Franco for being our friend. To say we will miss you is a vast understatement.  Our hearts are breaking for your Wife Marie, and for your entire family. Godspeed my friend, til we meet again....      Chef Pam Green

Giving and Caring results in a wonderful "feel good" thing! 


Putting others above you that are less fortunate and seeing their appreciation of your commitment to help them succeed... The volunteer experience with Chefs With A Mission is quite rewarding, see for yourself.
