Chef Ariq Barrett
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
