Social responsibility is indispensable part of our philosophy
For 30 years now, we, at La Chef Levi, have set a professional goal; to train the next generation of professionals with the best Chefs, Pastry Chefs and Bakers. In addition to discipline, evolution and passion, we have set an equally momentous and worthwhile goal; to be effectively helpful in society and always next to those in need, both individually and collectively.
How our future Chefs give back to society?
During these 30 years of operation of La Chef Levi in Greece and abroad, we have had the honor of leading and creating various campaigns of corporate social responsibility, both publically and not.
Over the years, our students have cooked and distributed more than 70,000 portions of food, free of charge, for various church charities, for people at KETHEA (Therapy Center for Dependent Individuals) who are in the process of rehabilitation and for any social group in need! It goes without saying that we are always first to answer any school’s call for creative leisure activities for children associated with cooking and pastry, where they play the role of the teacher for a few hours!
During Christmas holidays, students make gift packs and delicious gingerbread cookies and hand them out to children in need of an extra smile.
Through Gastronomy, we have the responsibility to raise issues of social sensitivity, always in a “sweet” way, as befits the Chefs of the future.
The founder of the School, Virginia Anastasiadou, has often donated the proceeds from events to hospitals and organizations such as the Association of Friends of Children with Cancer “Storgi”.
Teachers, students and society pull together
Our school, fully addressing the needs of society and of our fellow human beings, carries out a variety of actions, developing a sense of social responsibility. We are particularly pleased that the school’s social responsibility is embraced universally; by teachers, students and society alike.
Teachers and students of the school, guided by passion and zeal, respond willingly to any call. In the context of social responsibility, they help our fellow human beings who are in need by providing voluntary assistance through Gastronomy. Our school has been helping people and families for years through a very wide range of actions.
Day of humanity: At the epicenter of social responsibility
In January 2018, La Chef Levi establishes “Day of Humanity”, launching a major initiative for society; its own blood bank.
On this special day there is blood donation as well as clothes and food donations in the school facilities for people in need. We are particularly touched by the response of students, graduates and friends who give a strong message of compassion to all those who need us.
The school’s blood bank was born and will unite all the people of the School forever, wherever they are! At the end of each event, our students’ smiles fill us with pride and optimism for the future.
Having students and graduates from all over Greece, we wish for them to not only be great professionals, but also ambassadors of humanity and solidarity.
