Enter the Fire House Cook-off
|Tuesday, 06 July 2010|
Help promote healthy eating in the fire service and you’ll have a chance to win $10,000. The television show LIVE! with Regis and Kelly is holding a Coast-to-Coast Fire House Cook-off this summer. Firefighters can submit their favorite recipe, and each week one firefighter and recipe will be featured on the show. The final cook-off will be August 20, with the winner receiving $10,000 and the recipe will be published in Better Homes and Gardens Magazine.
This is a perfect opportunity to show that firehouse cooking can be healthy as well as delicious. If you have a recipe that promotes good health and tastes great, the NVFC Heart-Healthy Firefighter Program encourages you to submit it for your chance to win. On the entry form, let the reviewers know how important heart-healthy recipes are in the fire service. Heart attack is the number one cause of line-of-duty deaths, and healthy eating is a key component of reversing this trend.
If your recipe is selected, promote the messages of the Heart-Healthy Firefighter Program as part of your feature and let firefighters and the public know how important it is for first responders to stay healthy. Inform the NVFC in advance of your feature so that staff can help provide heart-health information as well as alert our membership to watch your segment.
