"Chefs are at the very heart of what we do," says Recipe for Success Founder, Gracie Cavnar. "It was 24 chefs - including many of this year's amazing talents -- who rolled into fourth-grade classrooms with me 13 years ago to inspire and empower children to make healthier eating decisions."

The Banquet raises 20% of the Foundation's annual budget.
