Trenton Junior Chefs Program was founded in 2015 by Shiloh Community Development Corporation in the City of Trenton. This program was created to promote unity, health/wellness, and academic excellence via entrepreneurship, and culinary arts. Our junior chefs are ServSafe Certified in food sanitation and trained to prepare international cuisines. The Trenton Junior Chef Programs serves all communities in Mercer and neighboring counties.
On July 26, 2017, the Trenton Junior Chefs used produce from the Farminary and the Greenwood Farmer's market to prepare delicious farm-to-table cuisines. The dress code was casual or business casual. Children were allowed.

Overall, it was an awesome experience and a total success. Lives were impacted and bellies were filled. Please take the time to check out a few choice words below about the event from Darren "Freedom" Green. Thanks!
The event was a showcase to allow the Parents, Community and Young Minds themselves to see their work and progress. 2 programs were highlighted and saluted that run through the CDC. The Culinary Arts program taught the Young Minds to shop, prepare and cook their own meals. Last night they prepared and served 3 meals, Soul Food, Caribbean, and Italian. There were 3 stations and the food was fabulous and they served the parents and community. There was also an acknowledgment and salute of the Coding Program which taught the Young Minds coding and computer programming. Both programs were taught and facilitated through Shiloh and Shiloh CDC, which are 2 independent sources of force and power moving as one organization for one common cause and purpose. We are now working to develop the Culinary Program into a Catering Business which can serve others events while they become self-sufficient as a business. We are being intentional with our programs now to move people from social services to social justice. In doing so they become strong and inspire those watching and around them to do the same.
We also had the State Police do a presentation. After what occurred in Dallas and Baton Rouge we are now being intentional with our outreach with law enforcement. Every event we do or put on we want them present and having a presence. We are doing things with one action. One, we are exposing the young minds to the careers of law enforcement and all that this entails. They can now be the change agents that are needed. Second, we remove the barrier that is in place historically between law enforcement and Black and Brown communities. We remove the fear by removing the disconnect and in doing g so we acknowledge and get to know one another. That lays the groundwork for respect and once that’s in place you don’t hurt or disrespect what you have respect for. Moving this city forward one block, one community at a time.
