Chili Saves Lives!

25 Jan

3114442207_0fbbf251fbNo, really though.  HealthCorps is a remarkable organization that advocates for the health of future generations, especially through food.  They offer healthy food and eating curriculums in over fifty high schools across the country.  Similar to Butter Beans, Health Corps strives to change the way our children see food in creative and engaging ways.

A large part of HealthCorps mission is to keep their programs affordable for low-income communities through exciting fundraising events. This Friday, January 27th, is HealthCorps 2nd annual Chili-Off hosted at Berry Park, Brooklyn from 5:00 to 7:00 PM.  In order to compete, ten teams must have one “secret” ingredient picked out, and a interesting story behind their chili which they will tell to the audience and judges.  The entrance fee for the Chili-Off is $10, and includes beer along with a sample of each of the ten different chilis!  Tickets will be sold at the door of the event.  The money raised helps to support HealthCorps hard-working coordinators in each school they serve, who are full-time advocates for the healthy eating habits of the community.
