As part of the Food Revolution Day celebration, Centered Chef debuted a video project designed to educate Chicago on mindful munching.  In partnership with various schools and NFP youth programs in the Chicago land area, our “Eat Your Veggies” Video Contest was born!

Aside from empowering these kids and young adults to eat healthier, our vision is for their family and peers to see the work they’ve done and learn from them.  Based on the total number of YouTube views captured on each video from now through exactly 1pm CST on 5/26, the winning team will receive a 25 person cooking party at Centered Chef along with amazing prizes furnished by KitchenAid!
