Chef Dez lends a hand in the kitchen at Mission’s Ecole Christine Morrison elementary school.

Chef helps Mission school make chili

The hot lunch program at Ecole Christine Morrison elementary school got some professional advice.

When parents at Ecole Christine Morrison elementary school decided to try making chili, they didn’t know they would get some expert advice.

Chef Dez, who has two children attending the school, heard about the school’s intent to make chili as part of its hot lunch menu and offered to come by and show organizers how to make his Quick and Thick 3 Bean Chili.

Dez said it was an “absolute pleasure” to work with the PAC to bring his chili to the hot lunch program.

He was more than happy to help support the program.

“These PAC individuals are dedicated to help support the kids of today for the future of tomorrow and I think it is imperative that we all, as community member, do our part to help support organizations like these.”

Dez also donated 10 copies of his new book Parsley is World Peace in Disguise to the PAC to help with possible fundraising efforts.

About 20 volunteer parents help make meals for the program that provides a hot lunch to students five days a week.
