Review for Miami Heart Research Institute Inc, Miami, FL, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

My participation occured as a volunteer and as a representative for the schools culinary arts programs. The Heart Research Institute provided a great opportunity for students to participate in their Heart of a Chef event. Top culinary students from two high schools in our student organization, Family, Career & Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) were able to compete in an "Iron Chef" competition, preparing a heart healthy meal that was judged and a winner received a prize. We also provided an opportunity for middle school students to display fruit and vegetable carvings, of which a winner received a prize. This brought many families to the event to learn about heart healthy food preparation and heart healthy eating habits.

Role:  Volunteer & helped recruit students to participate, and assisted the planning committee .
