A Message from the Chapter President
February 2019
We are only a week away from Chef Connect Atlantic City. The excitement in the air is palpable as we await the beginning of this Conference as it promises to be fantastic!
For the first time ever, on a Conference level we will be having a Community Outreach Service to help feed the homeless at the Atlantic City Salvation Army on Sunday February 24th 2019. Please join us as we help those in need. ( You must be registered for the Conference and tell them to sign you up for the Community Service). You must register with the ACF for this Community Service. I believe, whenever and wherever we are able to help, that it is a privilege to give back.
Make sure to cheer on the Knowledge Bowl Teams, the Culinary Teams, Student Chef of the Year, Chef of the Year Contestants as they have worked extremely hard to get to this point.
Looking past the Chef Connect Conference we will continue to be very active. The Captains Table to benefit the South Jersey Community Food Bank will take place on Thursday February 28 th, 2019, as we come together again to raise much needed funds for those in need.
Our Presidents Charity Scholarship Ball will take place on March 31st, 2019 at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Consider joining us for what will be a fantastic night benefiting our Culinary Students with Scholarships,raising money for “Chefs in need” Chef and Child Initiative and to continue our Community Outreach Program.
We are also in the early stages of our Annual Chefs at the Shore with a tentative date in June . An evening you don’t want to miss as we showcase many of our local talented Chefs from around Atlantic City, featuring some of their favorite dishes!
Looking towards the National Convention in August 2019, we as a Chapter will again be spearheading the National Community Outreach Program for the fourth year in a row in Orlando, Florida.
As you see, we have some wonderful events coming up and look forward to sharing together the experiences that we will gain and learn from.
I continue to be very humbled and proud to serve as your President. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with your thoughts, suggestions and ideas, they are always welcome.
Respectfully yours,

Chef Kenneth B. Trout CEC, CCA, AAC
