BPM Fitness is partnering with local charities, beginning in July, by running "Karma Bootcamp" classes 1x per week (Fridays at 5:30pm). These classes will be available to the community by donation (suggested $5-10) in a cash-box. At the end of any given month, all of the cash is collected and ALL of the proceeds will go to the selected local charity of that month.
This month's local charity is Growing Chefs! Ontario.
Growing Chefs! Ontario is a registered charity based in London, Ontario that unites chefs, growers, educators and community members in children’s food education projects.
In the last decade of program delivery, Growing Chefs has seen the impacts of food and food education first-hand. Cooking develops and encourages many important skills in areas of math, science, history, geography, literacy, art and more. Understanding how and where food grows, how food interacts with our senses, the history of different foods and techniques, the names we give to food, and how food relates to our own lifestyles and cultures are all important to child development.
Growing Chefs! Ontario offers a variety of food education projects to get kids and communities excited about healthy, wholesome food! Click the Educational Programs tab to determine which Growing Chefs! project is right for your children, school, class or community group.

Growing Chefs! Ontario has been incorporated since 2008.
**These special "karma" classes are available on a first-come, first-serve basis- so make sure you come 5-10 minutes early.
