Annual Gathering

We are making school food better together.

ScratchWorks will hold an annual event that brings school food professionals interested in scratch cooking together to share, learn, and connect. This yearly Gathering will be a key component of the collective and will ensure that members have the opportunity to connect and grow into a community that will serve as a support network throughout the coming year.

Key stakeholders in the cook-from-scratch school food movement will be invited to attend the Annual Gathering. Invitees will range from pioneers in scratch cooking to aspiring operators committed to change. Attendees will leave with the resources, connections, and knowledge they need to create change in their programs.

Applications for our gathering in Austin, TX on April 23–26, 2023 are now closed. If you are interested in being placed on a waitlist, please send an email to and we will be in touch.
