The ACF Tampa Bay Chapter of the American Culinary Federation (ACF) Chef Members enjoyed a busy October as they celebrated two (2) special events. The Chef’s combined Child Nutrition Day, October 16th, and International Chef’s Day, October 20th, to demonstrate their support of both events. The Chef’s visited “A Kids Place” to prepare healthy meals for the residents such as Chef Anne White’s fruit and vegetable smoothies.
This was an opportunity for the Chef’s to share their noble profession with local community children while they taught healthy eating habits with the end goal of preparing all children for a healthy life!
About the ACF Tampa Bay Chapter:
Our chapter’s purpose is the advancement of the culinary profession and culinary awareness through education and certification of the membership and close interaction with other local organizations. The chapter membership is composed of chefs, cooks, culinary educators, culinary enthusiasts, students, and purveyors from Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas Counties and the surrounding metro area. Our primary local outreach program is the ACF Educational Foundation’s Chef & Child Initiative, an ongoing program whereby our chapter chefs go out into their communities to educate children and families in understanding proper nutrition by providing tools and resources for community-based programs led by American Culinary Federation chef members.
