Farmer’s Market of the Ozarks has helped us find many of the local farmers and food producers that we utilize on the show. All the farmers and food producers whose items appear on the show give us product to sell at the fundraisers and our students gain production knowledge from doing feature video stories on them and then we provide them the packages to be utilized how they would like for their marketing.

The American Culinary Federation (ACF) Springfield-Branson Chef’s Association has been a big supporter by encouraging competitors to participate.  Students who attend those meetings to sell the show to competitors learn a lot about the food and restaurant industry here.  All the Chefs who have competed on the show have been great ambassadors for us to the culinary community and provide food and silent auction items for our fundraising gala in the fall season.

We are truly appreciative of the items and energy provided by so many people to make this show a reality. And in the end, we provide a quality television series that sets the production quality bar high for students, that our community can engage with and root for their favorite chefs and restaurants.

And finally, to give back to the community from our end, at our Show-Me Chefs Gala, where we celebrate the season and chefs who participate to help raise money for the next season, we also help raise money for Care to Learn, a local charitable organization who helps K-12 students with emergent health and hygiene needs so they can learn. We hope to help younger students learn so that they may one day be able go to college and follow their passion.  It’s an interconnected learning experience and all-around community love fest!

SHOW-ME CHEFSREACHING INTO THE COMMUNITY

Show-Me Chefs is produced by the Media, Journalism & Film Dept at Missouri State University. MSU has a Public Affairs mission which includes cultural competence, ethical leadership, and community engagement.  Show-Me Chefs provides a hands-on experience for all of these competencies.  We could not create and improve the quality of this television show without the help of our community partners like 319 Event Center, Mama Jean’s Natural Markets, KOZL-TV and our many other partners.

Each season around 50 students from multiple disciplines, media, electronic arts, music, art and design and communication work on the show through the Pre-production, Production and Post-Production phases of the show.  They interface with the community in various ways from producing to marketing to patronage to being responsible to our business sponsors with follow-through and deadlines.
