Sun City chefs enthusiastically hopped onboard in support of a campaign to educate young children in the North West province about making healthy food choices.
Chefs from Sun City spent time with youngsters from Thari Mmelegi, an orphanage in the underprivileged community of Rietspruit,teaching the youngsters to prepare some easy and healthy meals. The children got to become chefs for the day under the expert guidance of the resort’s culinary experts and have a lot of fun learning about fresh, natural and healthy foods through a series of activities.
“Our culinary team was thrilled and heartened to participate in the event which is closely aligned with Sun City’s ongoing efforts to educate and empower surrounding communities about healthy food concepts. We are involved in a number of feeding initiatives to assist underprivileged families, with a special focus on school going children,” says Nicholas Froneman, at Sun City.
The initiative, a collaboration between the South African Chefs Associations through their World Chefs Tour Against Hunger and Young Chefs Club, and Nestle and the World Association of Chefs Societies, marked International Chef’s Day on 20 October 2015 with a series of interactive cooking workshops across the country affecting 200 children.
