International Chefs Day
Date When Celebrated : This holidays is always celebrated on October 20
Not all holidays and special events originate in the United States, not by a long shot. Some of the really great ones originate in just about any part of the world. International Chefs Day is one of those great ones, and it comes to us all the way from South Africa. From the southern tip of Africa, this holiday has spread around the world, making it a truly international day.
One of the things that makes this special day so great, is that it is not just about honoring or celebrating chefs. Sure, one of the objectives of this day is to celebrate this noble profession, and to promote this exciting career. But, the main focus of International Chefs Day is to provide education, especially to kids, on how to eat healthy.
The organization Worldchefs is perhaps the largest promoter of International Chefs Day. This is a world-wide network of chef associations. Each year, the Worldchefs organization sets a theme for this day, and helps to provide educational materials to interested groups. These materials makes it pretty easy for your group to hold healthy eating programs for your community.
To celebrate this day, schools, governments, and local organizations are encouraged to hold educational programs, workshops and exhibits on how to prepare healthy foods. In keeping with the stated goals of this day, a special emphasis should be placed on holding programs for young people, helping them to establish healthy eating habits for a long and healthy life.
