Fifty percent of the registration goes to Chefs for Kids, Inc., a 501(c)3 joint venture of the American Culinary Federation Chefs of Las Vegas and University of Nevada Cooperative Extension. The Chefs for Kids program works to eliminate malnutrition and hunger in children through education and awareness. Chefs teamed up with nutrition educators who developed nutrition curricula for first- and second-grade children. The curricula use age-appropriate techniques and bilingual materials, providing students with the essential knowledge necessary to adopt healthful eating habits. Educators teach students how to choose healthy foods, develop active lifestyles and use good food safety skills, such as proper hand washing. Educators also reach out to the families of the children through the use of informational parent letters and attendance at Parent Night activities at the schools. The Chefs for Kids program has reached more than 46,000 students in its 23-year history.
