Who is Jeff Henderson?
An award-winning chef, best-selling author, engaging television personality and inspirational public speaker, Chef Jeff is an ex-offender who turned his life around through cooking.

What is the Chef Jeff Project?
A fast-paced culinary competition featuring four teams comprised of well-known local chefs, students enrolled in Pima Community College’s Center of Excellence in Hospitality Leadership and students attending Pima County’s Joint Technical Education District (JTED) high schools. Judging will be conducted by celebrity chefs for each of the rounds. The winning team will face Chef Jeff and his team in a final cook-off. Proceeds from the event will provide scholarship support for students attending Pima (our goal is to raise $25,000 in scholarships through this event).

How may we participate?
Partner with us! Partnerships are available at a variety of price points and include benefits to your organization. The event features a Career & Education Expo for job seekers as well as the cooking demonstrations. Pima Chancellor Lee D. Lambert will host a private VIP Reception with Chef Jeff from 3-4:30 p.m.
