Event description
José Andrés, Chef, Activist & Nobel Peace Prize Nominee, explores life and faith to determine the ingredients of a healthy community.

About this Event

Creating a healthy community is not as easy as it sounds. There is no road map or master plan. Instead we are left to our own devices to identify what is important and essential in our desire to have our community be both happy and healthy.

As a part of an on-going Community Conversation on the creation of healthy communities, join CHI St. Joseph Children's Health to hear the unique perspective of ground-breaking chef and food activist José Andrés. During the conversations, Chef Andrés will explore his life experience as an immigrant to the United States of America, his learnings from his career as an award winning chef, his commitment to food security and the healing of communities through food and his faith as he helps us understand what a healthy community may be and how he envisions communities being able to work together to assure the opportunity and blessing of health and happiness for all residents.
