A Message from Your Region Vice President
Summer is heating up and so is ACF. There are so many exciting things to get involved in. One initiative that ACF is spearheading is the "Chefs Move to Schools," an integral part of the Lets Move! Campaign by first lady Michelle Obama. More than 50 ACF chefs will participate in the program's kickoff June 4 at the White House. Many schools and chefs are eligible to sign up and get involved in this effort to raise a nation of healthier kids. To find out how, click here.

Our ACFEF Chef & Child Foundation (CCF) is helping kids to be healthier, too. All across the country, ACF chapters have begun their annual CCF activities, and chefs are cooking with and teaching children how to eat and cook healthier. At the 2010 ACF National Convention in Anaheim, Calif., CCF is hosting a service day July 31 where chefs will get to work face-to- face with low-income families who face the challenges of providing adequate nutrition to their children on a regular basis. Any chef can get involved; just click here to find out how. Does you chapter have an active CCF branch? Chapters that engage in CCF activities have a larger and more engaged membership. Giving back allows us all to be a little more energized.
Preparations are gearing up for this year's national convention. Please ensure that your chapter is represented as we conduct the vital business that will forge the future for ACF. For many months, we have been stressing the importance of bringing your chapter into good standing. Only chapters in good standing will have a vote at the Board of Governors meeting. Please take the necessary steps to ensure that your chapter's voice is heard. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about this issue.
