WHEN IS INTERNATIONAL CHEFS DAY?
Each year on October 20th, Worldchefs celebrates International Chefs Day.
Since its creation by the Late Chef Dr. Bill Gallagher in 2004, Worldchefs has been committed to using International Chefs Day to celebrate our noble profession, always remembering that it is our duty to pass on our knowledge and culinary skills to the next generation of Chefs with a sense of pride and commitment to the future.
Over the past years, Worldchefs has partnered with Nestlé Professional to teach kids around the globe about the importance of healthy eating by hosting fun-filled workshops worldwide.
Uncertainty is all around us, never more so than today. 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!
This year’s International Chefs Day campaign theme is Healthy Food for the Future!
With your participation, Worldchefs will celebrate together around the world and make International Chefs Day 2020 the best year yet!
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 our theme for International Chefs Day this year is focused around sustainability and the environment.
We want to use this opportunity to teach kids about healthy eating by letting them be creative with food. With the Chef’s input, education and knowledge, kids will be able to create recipes out of healthy foods, helping to teach the kids about Healthy Food for the Future.
HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE?
All Chefs from around the globe are invited to host their very own Healthy Food for the Future workshop in your region. It could be an event for your own children, or an event for 300 children, every child counts and it is important to share the opportunity to learn and enjoy eating healthy food!
A toolkit with everything you need to run an International Chefs Day workshop from instructions to materials to recipes to social media tips, has been prepared for you. Thanks to all those Chefs who have already contributed to the 2020 campaign by submitting recipes! The complete toolkit can be downloaded below.
