Chef Partners

The Ryan Wells Foundation’s chef partners are the most gifted culinary mastersĀ in the Tampa Bay area. They provide generous support on many levels, including mentorship, job placement, volunteer opportunities, industry advice and fundraising events.

We are very fortunate to have these chefs give back to the industry thatĀ has paved their way to success.

Visit their restaurants located throughout Pinellas County and witness their culinary creativity in one room as they work side-by-side with culinary students at our spring fundraiser “Evening with the Chefs” at the Sheraton Sand Key.
