Support Healthy Eating in October with ACF and Worldchefs

Childhood Nutrition Day

Celebrate ACF’s Childhood Nutrition Day (Oct. 16) during the month of October and help spread awareness about the need for education about proper nutrition and obesity issues.

Since the campaign’s launch in 1995, thousands of chefs across the nation have participated in events within their local communities to feed hungry children, and foster and promote awareness of proper nutrition.

Spread the Word Virtually in 2020

This year, Childhood Nutrition Day is going virtual to support social distancing guidelines and minimize health risks. Help us make a big impact around the nation and promote healthy eating.

Together, we can raise awareness about proper nutrition and make a difference in the community. During the month of October:

  • Post your healthy, kid-friendly recipes on social media.
  • Prepare a healthy dish on Facebook live or Zoom.
  • Partner with a local school and offer to host a virtual demo.
  • Share the ACF CND Virtual Demo bundle with your staff and students.

Don’t forget to tag @ACFChefs and share your virtual posts and events with to be a part of the impact.

International Chefs Day

Since its creation by the Late Chef Dr. Bill Gallagher in 2004, Worldchefs has been committed to using International Chefs Day to celebrate our noble profession.

This year’s theme Healthy Food for the Future is provided by Nestle Professional. Children will learn about sustainability and plant-based foods. Show children healthy eating habits that will help with their immune systems during these uncertain times.

Events may be hard to host with COVID 19, but creating a video, Zoom meeting, Facebook live, or any type of feed to post for the children is highly welcomed. Or simply share and have fun cooking up recipes at home with your very own children. Toolkit, posters, place mats, and recipes can be downloaded at For more information, email
