Mark Your Calendars: International Chefs Day is October 20th!
Unfortunately, uncertainty is still around us, so keeping ourselves and our children healthy is a top priority in today’s world. Maintaining a strong immune system and eating “stress-busting” foods will help us through these unpredictable times. Let us keep moving forward on positivity and good health. The Worldchefs way to do that is by preparing children for a healthy life!
Over the past years, Worldchefs has partnered with Nestlé Professional to teach children around the globe about the importance of healthy eating by hosting fun-filled workshops worldwide.
Healthy Food for the Future
This year’s International Chefs Day 2021 campaign will once again promote the theme of Healthy Food for the Future.
To ensure a healthy life & planet for future generations, it is vital that we start teaching our children about the impact that the production and consumption of food has on the environment. It is for this reason that our theme for International Chefs Day this year is to remain focused on sustainability, the environment, and healthy eating habits.
How to Make a Difference
Children have been on a roller coaster this year. Let us give them something to celebrate. Join me and Chefs from around the globe on or around October 20th and host a fun and exciting event or create a short video to post on social media. Every child can benefit from this experience, and it is important to share the opportunity to learn and enjoy eating healthy food!
Just go to www.internationalchefsday.worldchefs.org to learn more and download the updated toolkit. There are many delicious and healthy recipes to choose from this year. This will help you to organize and launch your International Chefs Day 2021 workshop. The toolkit has everything you need to run an International Chefs Day workshop, with instructions and materials, recipes and games, social media tips, and more. It’s all been prepared for you!
In 2004, the late Dr. Bill Gallagher implemented International Chefs Day to celebrate our profession and to share and pass on our knowledge and culinary skills to our children. It is our legacy to help children get excited about healthy food and our industry.
If you are planning to host a Healthy Food for the Future workshop, the entire International Chefs Day Committee members are standing by to help you and guide you. Just ask, we are here for you. Email us at [email protected].
