To Press Releases listSolon, OH,Oct 20, 2016

A team of chefs and employees from Nestlé Professional will participate in International Chef’s Day on October 20, 2016 visiting a local chapter of the Boys & Girls Club of America.

A cooking demo, hands on activities, and even the chance to play with their food and create “Art on a Plate” masterpieces using fruits, vegetables and grains that the kids may not be familiar with will round out the day.

The team from Nestlé Professional will focus on nutrition education and equipping students with a bit of culinary skill and industry knowledge so they understand what is possible if they choose to pursue a career as a chef. For pictures and ideas for healthy eating, follow us on Twitter.

While International Chef’s Day is really just one day, the partnership between Nestlé and the Boys & Girls club extends far beyond one day. In support of #Nestlé150for150, Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) hosted National Fitness Competition events at Clubs around the country. Nestlé has an ongoing relationship with Boys & Girls Clubs of America focused on nutrition, health, exercise and giving back to local communities.

“Nestlé Professional is excited to participate in International Chef’s Day this year. We’re all looking forward to the events on Thursday. There is going to be food, fun and we’ll even sneak in some education” says Laura Hardin, Corporate Communications Manager for Nestlé Professional. “This event is for the younger kids at the club. We’re already planning another date before Thanksgiving so the older kids from the Boys & Girls Club don’t feel left out.”
