Philanthopic Efforts

LDEI chapters have collectively raised approximately 3 million dollars to fund culinary scholarships, food service training for underprivileged women, culinary libraries and the Green Tables Civic Agriculture and Garden Initiative: Garden-to-table education projects, held in communities, that draw upon Dames’ considerable experience. The St Louis Chapter has provided scholarships for seven culinary students since its inception in 2008 and has raised significant funds for the Green Tables Initiative.
