Chef & Child Foundation
ACF’s Chef & Child Foundation (CCF) was founded in 1989 to educate children and families in understanding proper nutrition through community-based initiatives led by ACF members, and to be the voice of the culinary industry in its fight against childhood hunger, malnutrition and obesity. CCF offers chefs numerous resources and programs, including “Chefs in the Classroom” for preschoolers through fifth-graders; “Cooking for Kids,” for third- through eighth-graders; and “Hit a Homerun for Nutrition.” Each year, on October 16, CCF and ACF chapters nationwide celebrate Childhood Nutrition Day. Chef’s Outreach to the Community Service Day, which is held annually in conjunction with the ACF national convention, is another anticipated community outreach event. CCF also offers many free resources to the public, such as monthly “Culinary Nutrition News” and “Ingredient of the Month” articles. For more information, visit www.acfchefs.org/CCF.
Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® dressings & dips
More than fifty years ago, Steve and Gail Henson settled on 120 acres of land outside Santa Barbara, California. The family ran Hidden Valley Ranch, offering hiking tours, horseback riding and fishing, in the day. At night, folks would enjoy a home-cooked meal before gathering around the campfire to listen to stories. Guests came to enjoy the great outdoors and wholesome meals, but it was something else that made them come back: the delicious, homemade buttermilk salad dressing with a special blend of herbs and spices lovingly prepared by the proprietor—what we know today as the original Ranch dressing.
Who knew that Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® dressings & dips, a mix of herbs, spices and buttermilk whipped up back in the ’50s would grow to sell throughout the United States and eventually in more than 30 countries? Ranch has become America’s favorite dressing and can be found in virtually every restaurant these days. It is enjoyed on everything from salads and vegetables to pizza and fried chicken. Today, you can still enjoy the taste of Original Ranch with its perfect blend of herbs and spices and also try great new flavors born from our rich heritage.
