The ACF and our local Chefs de Cuisine chapter sponsors several events require substantial amounts of money. On a national level, the ACF sponsors culinary teams competing in world competitions as well as efforts to address malnutrition and hunger in the US and foreign countres.

Case in point, ACF Culinary Team USA represented the United States at the Culinary World Cup in Luxembourg last November (2011) and will be traveling to Urfurt, Germany in the fall of 2012 to compete in the 2012 International Culinary Art Exhibition (the World Culinary Olympics). Two St. Louis Chefs de Cuisine members, Chefs Ben Grupe and Kevin Storm are on the 7 member team. Our Chefs de Cuisine chapter and the Chefs de Cuisine Education Foundation are committed to raising funds to help defray the expenses of ACF CUlinary Team USA.
