The ACFLI was founded by nineteen Long Island chefs, whose common goal was to amplify the ACF’s commitment to training, education and humanitarian efforts here on Long Island. Today, the ACF Long Island Chapter has over 200 active, junior, student and associate members and growing.
A Few of Our Programs
To further the ACF’s commitment to humanitarian efforts, the ACFLI has developed the “Adopt A Kitchen” program. In this innovative endeavor, ACFLI chefs volunteer as “consultants” to many of Long Island’s soup kitchens advising on subjects ranging from food preparation and purchasing to sanitation. The ACFLI was awarded a plaque by the “Every Fifth Child Campaign” for its outstanding work in developing the “Adopt A Kitchen” program.
