The ACFPCASJ was founded by twelve chefs, whose common goal was to amplify the ACF's commitment to training, education and humanitarian efforts here in Atlantic City. Today, the ACFPCASJ Chapter has over 140 active, junior, student and associate members and growing.
A few of our programs...
To further the ACF's commitment to humanitarian efforts, the ACFPCASJ has developed the "Adopt a School" program Eating Healthy. In this innovative endeavor, ACF PCASJ chefs volunteer as "consultants" to the Program working with the Community Food Bank of NJ, Southern Branch. Atlantic County.
Atlantic City Aquarium Historic Waterfront Foundation, the Chef at the Shore event. And Sister Jean’s soup kitchens.
The ACFPCASJ also works with the Boys and girls club.
The ACFPCASJ Certification Program has been assisting chefs to attain professional certification. Our goal is that one day, every chef in Our Chapter and in Atlantic City be certified. The future is clear -- ACF certified chefs will be perceived synonymously with high quality food and it will not be uncommon for customers to inquire about the certification of every restaurant's chef.
