Project Description

Region: Central America

Country: Costa Rica

Location: Turrialba

Total Budget: $30,000

Area of Focus: Community economic development



Our project is Economic and Community Development Through Culinary Cuisine in Costa Rica. We aim to train young Costa Rican youth (girls and boys 16 to 20) in culinary arts. Training and mentoring by US and Costa Rican graduate students and chefs to mentor these young adults; develop and/or modify recipes using indigenous/locally grown foods; and teach nutrition components for enhanced cooking methods. Our goals are:

• Teach young adults who have tourism traffic in their cafes better culinary practices.

• Impart skill for young adults so they have the training to be employed in restaurants and tourist areas.

• Create a cookbook of recipes by students and mentoring chefs, publish and sell to help support The Sustainability House Culinary Project.

• Establish regular culinary events at CATIE (The Tropical Agricultural Research & Higher Education Center) to show case culinary skills of the young people using indigenous produce within their cuisine.

• Create a scholarship program for a select student to participate in formal Costa Rican advanced culinary school.

We continue partnering with the Cartago Rotary club as our host club as well as CATIE. Turrialba Hotel and Restaurant Chamber of Commerce has reached out to partner with us. We plan to add the University of North Texas and the Texas Women's University. We invite other district 5790 clubs and club members to participate.

DDF contributions in grey are pending approval of the corresponding district committee.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
