Always looking for ways to better the planet and the community we live in The Shining Youth Chefs program was born. Each month a chef from one of our partnering restaurants volunteers an evening of their time to come to one of the shelters of The Boys and Girls Club. Our chef teaches the youth of The Boys and Girls Club to make nutritious meals and learn important cooking skill along the way, thus readying them to cook for themselves for life outside of The Boys and Girls Club home. Our chefs help the youth gain necessary cooking skills that strengthens their ability to live on their own. The children recognize their own skills in following our chef’s footsteps as a mentor building confidence and enthusiasm. Chefs and restaurants have the option to be publicly recognized for their volunteered time and community development. Our community is important to us!

THE SHINING YOUTH CHEF’S PROGRAM
Here at ECO DINE it is not only sustainable solutions that we focus on, we are just as enthusiastic about bettering the community we live in and caring for the people who live in it. We have a strong involvement with the communities of Calgary through our Shining Youth Chefs program as well as our individual staff’s involvement in helping the homeless. After all with employees that have built their lives here, who better to know the needs of the people and communities within Calgary? With a passion for recycling and helping people our drivers, on their own accord, began collecting bottles and cans left in garbage areas and around the city while on their oil route and distributing them to the homeless they come across while collecting your oil.
