Chef Ariq Barrett with 16 yr old Chef Hubb

Chef Ariq Barrett is the Founder of Black Kidz Can Cook

My passion for culinary arts, children and giving back to the community propels this project. I am challenged daily being in front of different children from different backgrounds and family structures that need care and attention. Everyday as i teach I am also learning. Learning that all it takes is someone to actually care a little bit to make a big difference.

Theres a common misconception that you need to be in a certain line of work to be effective. Our volunteers just have to care! We are looking for people with like minds and kind hearts to give a little so that we can restore and rebuild the leaders of tomorrow
