Supporting the local community by preparing good meals and offering warm hospitality has always been important to Chef Azmin. He is honored to have partnered with many different charities and public-service organizations. Among the groups Sapphire Catering and Sapphire Culinary Group have proudly served are MaxLove Project, Miracles for Kids, Live for Others Foundation, Father Serra’s Food Pantry, Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC), and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). We’re pleased to share that donations through Chef Azmin have raised more than a half-million dollars for JDRF alone.
Chef’s vision for community service and sharing good food led him to introduce an in-house, health-focused dining program, Sapphire at Work, on the Orange County campus of a major corporation. The market and café serve more than 500 satisfied employees daily.
In addition to providing world-class cuisine, Chef is wholly committed to improving childhood nutrition and in 2008 founded Sapphire at School. The innovative school lunch program currently partners with eight Orange County schools and prepares fresh, wholesome, and flavorful meals for more than 4,500 students daily.
