Women’s Basketball Hosts Big Chef, Little Chef Event

NORTH MIAMI, Fla. (April 15, 2018) – This past Friday, the Johnson & Wales women's basketball team hosted students from W. J. Bryan Elementary School as part of JWU's Big Chef, Little Chef program.

The Big Chef, Little Chef program pairs students from nearby schools with JWU mentors in order to learn about nutrition, food preparation, and etiquette. The other side of eating properly is to also focus on the fitness side, which links athletics. 

"I think it's important for our women's basketball team to be involved and this event was a perfect opportunity for our ladies to interact with kids and have fun and teach them the importance of fitness and wellness," Head Coach Kymberly Hope said. "Therefore, we utilize our time with the future little chefs with warmup drills, basketball drills, and fun activities. It's all about teaching our youth to stay active and healthy."
