Committed to transparency, accountability and driven by the shared values of quality for everyone, no matter the social status or situation one finds himself in. Even though our team has different backgrounds, whether in Hospitality, Software Development or Engineering, we all share the same passion. We are on a mission to spread positivity, good will and health amongst people.

What a better way to do that than with homemade food?

This is how Home Chefs was born, an online platform where people can share authentic, homemade, fresh and healthy dishes with their local community. Not to forget as a non-profit organization we strongly support the statement do good to feel good, which is why we decided to help you feel good about yourself by making the less fortunate experience happiness. 

Join our food movement by contributing to the local community, support small businesses as well as charitable causes.

Why We Do It?

Did you know that the expensive eat out restaurants and the fast-food movement significantly reduced the habit and joy of homemade meals. It is shocking to acknowledge that some kids have never tasted a homemade dish. Why?

Because eating out is considered faster, easier, and more convenient, no need to clean up and most importantly no leftovers!

What if we tell you that we found a way where you can enjoy homemade meals every day? You can start growing your own business, if you like cooking and being creative in the kitchen this would be the perfect full-time or part-time job. Now this is a reality you can become your own boss, as Home Chefs offers you the stage to perform, show and sell your best recipes. Invite your father, mother, siblings or friends and become the star of your own business!

Even better, if you are not into cooking, feel a bit lazy or really miss your grandmas’ chicken soup, we offer you the chance to buy it and receive not only the best homemade meal in town, but also know that you did one good act today, as all of the money you pay will go directly to someone in need!

This is why we created Home Chefs Foundation:

One homemade meal a day keeps sadness away.

We initiate joy and happiness by creating a significant positive impact in the world!

Our Partners

we partner with:

How can we help? ( offer us a cause; tell us about a person in need that you know of  ( elder person, someone in need of surgery, a survivor of violence, kid in need, stray dog  or shelter, refugee or someone who lost their home due to the crisis) or simply show us a case that we can forward some of our donations to as “ something so little for us means the world to someone else”, let’s do it together!)

*Note: All of our earnings will go to charity initiatives. We will try to help as many people as we can and provide you with live updates of where your money is going to. The non-profit foundation of ‘Home-Chefs’ will also provide a yearly financial statement.

Responsible consumption and production

Home Chefs is a concept created to fight against food waste while reducing hunger. This platform aims to reduce global food waste, which is estimated to be around 1.3 billion tones each year, which is equivalent to to one third of all foods produced for consumption (FAO,
2020).

Wasting food when there are people dying from starvation? Something we have all heard, but seem to forget about, right!?

Sustainability is moving together with Home Chefs, on a mission to reduce costs and provide earth friendly services. The Home Chefs Platform will be accessible to the professional culinary chefs as well as the amateur cooks. This flexible and home working environment will promote the idea of cities and communities becoming more sustainable as well as bring local communities closer together!

Home Chefs created a platform that enables circularity and contributes to the mission of reducing global food waste and hunger.

All the money gathered from commissions and subscription fees, as well as money donated via the online platform goes directly to causes, we believe are fundamental to supporting the mentioned UNSDG’s. 

In case you have an idea of causes that support these UNSDG’s please CONTACT US.

Giving back to others is at the essence of becoming a happier and healthier individual, this helps you heal and connect with your soul. Home Chefs is here to evoke all the good memories associated with food and positive experiences. So do not hesitate share your memory by tagging us on Instagram.
