I will be rooting for the Chef in the Hat this week in a competition for the Foodcaching Launch Party. There are several teams participating and the winner will get a 1000 dollars to donate to their charity of choice. The Chef in the Hat’s donation will go to Food Lifeline.if he wins. So we need your help!
We would love any help getting the information about the team so download the app and tweet or Facebook with the hashtag #foodcaching #Chef in the Hat. That is all you have to do. The Chef in the Hat team will get points for all those mentions and they will come closer to winning the donation to Food Lifeline.
