French’s Foodservice has signed a three-year partnership with the American Culinary Federation, to support the Chef & Child Foundation. Sponsorships such as monthly nutrition articles from ACF and Clemson University, as well as a fundraising opportunity allowing ACF members to use their purchases to give back to the foundation, are part of the partnership.
â€˜The Chef and Child Foundation is a great organization that works through ACF chef members to educate kids about proper nutrition and eating healthy,â€™ said Jo’el Ellis, senior brand manager for French’s. â€˜French’s Foodservice wants to help support these efforts, so we’ve partnered with ACF to help make a difference. We’ve built our reputation on taking care of our customers, so they can take care of theirs â€” this is just another way for us to do that.â€™
The nutrition-focused articles started in April with Sweeteners Exposed and Omega-3s in May. These articles are created to provide nutrition information on a variety of topics. Future articles will be posted on the Culinary Nutrition News section of the ACF website.
â€˜We are honored to have French’s Foodservice come alongside the American Culinary Federation Education Foundation Chef & Child Foundation and join our fight against childhood hunger, malnutrition and obesity,â€™ said Ira Fingerman, Chef & Child Foundation committee vice chair.
â€˜As our first-ever sponsor, French’s Foodservice will support the Chef & Child Foundation’s many initiatives throughout the country, which are aimed at educating America’s children about healthy cooking. They are investing in a healthier tomorrow for all children and are helping bring awareness to the rise in rates of obesity and chronic diseases among children,â€™ added Fingerman.
