Cookin’ Up Breakfast

Booker ES 22 1200x628 Blog

A huge thank you to Mark Sandoval, Executive Chef at UNLV, and board member of both ACF Chefs Las Vegas and Chefs for Kids. 

Our charity partner, Chefs for Kids delivers breakfast to Title I schools in Southern Nevada feeding about 10,000 students a healthy meal each year. The schools selected for Cookin’ Up Breakfast also receive 40 minutes of nutrition education monthly through a partnership with University of Nevada, Reno Extension.

For this breakfast, UNLV Executive Chef, Mark Sandoval and his team of UNLV student volunteers, provided and cooked the food, which was then transported and served by ACF Chefs Las Vegas and Chefs for Kids volunteers. 

We love it when our membership can support the community’s educational institutions.

“We’re truly grateful to ACF Chefs Las Vegas for its steadfast support as founders of our charity, and even more so for its continuing commitment to providing volunteers and funding to make this program happen,”  said Heikili Apao, Chefs for Kids Chairman. 

Many hands help execute the Cookin’ Up Breakfast program including special partnerships from volunteer organizations who help supply, cook, and serve the food. We would love to see more ACF Chefs Las Vegas member businesses involved.
