Confident in our core values of friendship, teamwork and the spirit of giving, the Toques Blanches Lyonnaises have put a lot into supporting causes and chefs generously give their time at charity events.

In recent years, the Toques Blanches Lyonnaises has been working closely with Centre Léon-Bérard (CLB), a cancer research centre based in Lyon: our chefs have participated in charity dinners, organized cookery classes with CLB chefs, and more.

Since 2014 the Toques Blanches Lyonnaises association have committed to actively supporting the work of the Fondation Saint-Irénée in Lyon. In 2015, all proceeds of the gala dinner, organized by one of our members and hosted by fifteen other members, were donated to help children in Iraq.

Every year, our Association also supports the Fédération Française pour le Don du Sang Bénévole (French Federation for Voluntary Blood Donation) with fifteen members making pancakes for blood donors.
