As many of you know, we have chosen to postpone our annual Chef’s Challenge this year since we cannot be together in person. However, we still believe celebrating our community chefs and those behind
the scenes in the kitchen is vital – now more than ever – and we
need your help!
To participate, send us the name of your Community and your favorite Chef, as well as their photo. Include a picture of their signature dish with a few sentences explaining what makes their impact on your community so special. Since we can’t be together to sample their signature dishes in person, let’s honor our culinary teams by showcasing their delicious creations onscreen!
Within every Community, there are individuals who go above and beyond to improve, uplift and enrich the lives of others. Whether through acts of kindness, the ability to bring laughter through protective masks, or simply being present with a caring attitude, these individuals make the community better for all.
Help us honor these special individuals by submitting the name of your Community, your hero’s name, and two of your favorite photos with detailed captions. We will compile all of the photos submitted and share a special video with you at the conclusion of our CALAbration!
