What is International Chefs Day?
Each year on October 20th we celebrate International Chefs Day.
Since its creation by esteemed chef Dr. Bill Gallagher in 2004, Worldchefs has 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.
With your participation, we will make International Chefs Day 2019 the best one yet!
This year’s campaign theme is How Healthy Food Works.
We want to show how food affects our bodies internally. Following the last two years of Healthy Heroes and Healthy Foods for Growing up, How Healthy Food Works goes deeper into what different foods do for us and why we need them.
International Chefs Day is an opportunity to teach kids about healthy eating by letting them be creative with food. With the chef’s input, education and help, the kids will be able to create recipes out of healthy foods, helping to teach the kids How Healthy Food Works.
HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE?
All chefs from around the globe are invited to host a How Healthy Food Works workshop in your region.
A toolkit with everything you need to run an event – from instructions to materials to social media tips - has been prepared for you. The complete toolkit can be downloaded below. Nestlé Professional regional managers are standing by to help you find a venue, connect with schools and more.
To host a How Healthy Food Works workshop on or around October 20, 2019, please contact Vanessa Marquis, Chairman, International Chefs Day Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
