Initiated in 2014, Cook for a Smile (CFS) is a unique initiative by Smile Foundation, which brings together top corporate honchos, industry leaders and celebrities from diverse fields together to cook, contest and raise support for the nutrition of less privileged children.
Each leader is joined by one kid from Smile Foundation’s Mission Education centres, which brings in the zest in the competition. Michelin starred Chef Vikas Khanna hosts the CFS events, as Goodwill Ambassador for Smile Foundation’s ‘Nutrition for Education’ campaign.
Cook for a Smile is also an effort to sensitize the privileged society and make it an active partner in bringing positive change in the lives of the marginalized.
Chef Vikas Khanna is an award winning, Michelin Starred Indian chef, restaurateur, food writer, filmmaker, humanitarian and the host of the TV Show MasterChef India.
8 million children in India are out of school. Childhood is said to be the best part of one’s life – but for these kids, surrounded by poverty, hunger and hopelessness; many of them not even getting a single full meal in a day – a happy childhood is a distant dream.
