Each year, on the 20th of October, members of the World Association of Chefs Societies (Worldchefs) celebrate International Chefs Day. On this day, chefs around the world celebrate their profession and take the opportunity to not only promote the organization (Worldchefs) but also goodwill and friendship amongst each other, as well as taking the time to help people who are less fortunate. It is also a day, on which to assist the younger chefs, but most importantly, the day when we recognize the very important role that chefs play in our societies, for we have a great responsibility not only to feed, but also to give nourishment.
This year, Association of Culinary Professionals (ACP) Indonesia in colaboration with Yayasan Emmanue held a Food Charity & Cooking Demo at Kampung Garungsang Pasir, Madang, Sentul.

As Gissur Gudmundsson, President of the World Association of Chefs Societies says: “Example of what you can do is go to schools and pass on your knowledge, work with humanitarian aids on a local level, surprise kids in kindergartens, visit hospitals, orphanages… and bring back smiles to less fortunate ones. Once you hang up your Chefs jacket think about your actions, have they made a difference in the end of the day, and ultimately share your story with us”
