CKC was a proud sponsor and participant at Nosh for Nurture’s annual benefit held this past Saturday evening at the Winnetka Presbyterian Church on Hibbard Rd. Nosh for Nurture is an organization dedicated to fighting childhood obesity and improving nutrition generally among underprivileged families through nutritional and culinary education. CKC’s culinary mission of teaching “Cooking for Life” to kids from four to13 fit right in. Other sponsors and participants included Big Bowl, Valerie Bolon, John Trueman, Creperie St. Germain, and well-known local chef Gale Gand. All of the food served had a distinctly “delicious/good for you” balance, including CKC’s, which was super-nutritious high-protein and gluten-free red-lentil pasta with a simple marinara sauce and Parmesan shavings. As all 120 or so guests were fed, the church’s kitchens became beehives of activity, with all groups helping each other plate and serve appetizers. By all accounts it was a successful evening and for sure nobody left hungry.
CKC is proud to be among those trying to affect tangible change for good in the field of food and nutrition.
