Dear Worldchefs Colleagues!
Let’s start talking about International Chefs Day 2020!
Uncertainty is all around us, never more so than right now. These trying times can leave us feeling anxious & stressed. What we do know is that we need to keep ourselves and others healthy. Having a strong immune system and eating “stress-busting” foods will help us through these challenging times.
Here is a time when we can all be in this together! 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 habits by hosting fun-filled and healthy workshops worldwide.
This year’s International Chefs Day 2020 campaign theme is Healthy Food for the Future!
In order to ensure a healthy planet for future generations, it is vital that we start teaching our children about the impact that production and consumption of food actually has on the environment. It is for this reason that Nestlé Professional has recommended our theme for International Chefs Day this year be focused around sustainability and the environment.
How to get involved: It’s so easy! Join Chefs from around the globe on or around October 20th and host a fun and exciting event. It could be an event for your own children, or an event for 300 children, it is important to share the opportunity with every child to help them learn and enjoy eating healthy food!
Just go to www.internationalchefsday.worldchefs.org and download the Chef’s toolkit, recipes and marketing materials provided. There are many delicious & healthy recipes to choose from this year. This will help you to organize and launch your International Chefs Day 2020 Workshop. The Chef’s toolkit included all the details you will need to run an International Chefs Day workshop.
Recipes are also provided, thanks to all those Chefs who have already contributed to the 2020 International Chefs Day campaign!
In 2004, Dr. Bill Gallagher implemented International Chefs Day to celebrate our profession, to share and pass on our knowledge and culinary skills to our children. It’s 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 International Chefs Day Committee members are standing by to help you find a venue, connect with schools and much more. Just ask, we are here for you. Email us at [email protected].
