Who Knows What’s Cookin’?
William Penn High School’s own Chef Kip Poole has helped his students earn local and national accolades, but now it’s his turn to be in the spotlight! On Sunday, October 2, 2016, Poole will be among the featured contestants on the critically acclaimed TV show “Guys Grocery Games.”

The show will air at 8 pm on the Food Network with celebrity host Guy Fieri. The previously taped program pits Poole against three other chefs who face elimination challenges. Poole and the other chefs are tasked with creating scrumptious recipes after racing through grocery store aisles to find their ingredients. Who knows what Chef Poole will create in the kitchen or even if he’ll win? Poole, recently named William Penn’s 2017 Teacher of the Year, has been sworn to secrecy about the outcome of the show, so be sure to watch!

When Poole isn’t on national TV, he’s helping Culinary Arts students reach their dreams. As founder of The Crop Foundation, Poole gets top chefs from the area to help students prepare themed meals at pop-up events. The foundation’s proceeds raise scholarship funds for students to continue their education in the culinary and hospitality industries after graduation.

The next pop-up event called “Farm 101” will take place Saturday, September 24, 2016, from 4:00-9:00 pm at New Castle’s Historic Penn Farm located at 807 Frenchtown Road. For ticket information go to
