2013 Healthy Chefs Competition Winners & Recap!
The 2013 Healthy Chef Competition Winners & Recap!
Follow Me Foodie’s recap of The 14th Annual Healthy Chef Competition Event & Fundraiser.It was my fourth year attending the Healthy Chef Competition event and fundraiser on March 13th at the Hyatt Regency in Vancouver. It’s an annual event organized by the British Columbia Chef’s Association (BCCA) and the BC Produce Marketing Association (BCPMA) to promote healthy eating and the consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables.
On behalf of the BC Chefs’ Association I would like to thank the 500 guests who came out to support our event and chefs. Without your attendance and the generous donations from our sponsors (Platinum sponsors: Sysco Vancouver, Gordon Food Service, The Little Potato Company and B&W Insurance, Gold sponsors: BC Tree Fruits and Farmers’ Fresh Mushrooms) this would not be possible. The fundraising efforts help to support the Canadian Cancer Society, the Heart and Stroke Foundation and the “Fruits and Veggies Mix it Up” for better health program.
