The Results Are In! Check Out the Final Counts for International Chefs Day 2019

Paris, France · 13 December 2019 · The Results Are In! Check Out the Final Counts for International Chefs Day 2019


Greetings Chefs and Colleagues!

Children around the world had a chance to spend time with Worldchefs members, like yourself, this year on and around October 20th to celebrate International Chefs Day 2019.  With the theme “How Healthy Food Works,” provided by our sponsor Nestlé Professional, all were able to print materials from the toolkit including recipes, badges, certificates, games, and even placemats to make your event complete and with ease.

Chef Dr. Bill Gallagher, founder of International Chefs Day in 2004, would be so proud of this year’s efforts as you continued his vision of celebrating our noble profession and passing on our knowledge and culinary skills to the next generation with a sense of pride and commitment to the future.  

I am also very proud of the International Chefs Day Committee who volunteered their time this year to get the word out and answer any questions you had about the 2019 campaign. Everyone played a big role in making this a great year.


Thank you to my Team!!!

Joanna Ochniak, Poland

Mathew Shropshall, England

Ann Brown, Scotland

Kim-Håvard Larsen, Norway

Venessa Barnes, Australia

David Keir, South Africa

Ines Maria D’Amico, Ecuador

Tony Chang, Taiwan


And now what you have all been waiting for… Just look at our final counts for 2019!

Children Reached: 72,957       Chef Participation: 1,849

Congratulations! This is a great stride and everyone should be proud of what you have accomplished, and that is, sharing with children healthy eating habits and of course, our profession.  If you missed sharing with children this October, perhaps you can participate in 2020 by joining more chefs around the world for next year’s International Chefs Day campaign.

I leave you with this final thought, by Chef Dr. Bill Gallagher: 

“Progress is incremental so concentrate on what you can do today that you couldn’t do yesterday.”
