Welcome and thank you for visiting our web site. The
ACF Philadelphia is the Philadelphia Chapter of the
American Culinary Federation. We are very active
in Philadelphia and the five counties that surround
it. We have over 200 chefs, Sous chefs, cooks and
apprentices as members.
Well, the fires are burning at our board meetings so keep your eyes open for a new and improved chapter. Our focus is bringing the chapter back to the days of greater concentration on scholarships, increased volunteering in the community and concentration on our members. That's a lot to do, so I'm asking you to please help us by getting involved in our upcoming projects. From the smallest thing as a referral to finding of donations and sponsorship for our fundraising events would be greatly appreciated. Ask your employer to get involved. But bottom line...we needyour SUPPORT.
The board as made changes to our member meeting admission fee based upon the increase of costs in our industry. The following changes will come into effectJanuary 1, 2014:
1. General meeting admission for current members will be increased from $15 to $20.
We didn't forget you...so thanks need to go out to the students from Bucks County who worked at the Blair Mill Inn at our September meeting: Gia Fanello, Phoenix Mattis, Allison McDill, Douglas Histand, Janelle Higgins and Alex Tommes.
