Relive the Best of #ANC18 with Closing Keynote Chef Jeff Henderson


Whether you want to relive the powerful words of Chef Jeff Henderson’s keynote address at #ANC18, or catch them for the first time, you and your team now have the chance. By special arrangement with Chef Jeff, SNA members can enjoy an exclusive opportunity to view his incredible 50-minute #ANC18 speech now through September 21, 2018.*

Award-winning celebrity chef and best-selling author, Chef Jeff roused the audience’s pride and passion for their roles as the first line of defense against childhood hunger—and potential criminality. Sharing his emotional journey of redemption from the streets to the stove, he discovered his passion and gift for cooking in the unlikeliest of places, prison. “Poverty doesn’t discriminate. Childhood hunger doesn’t discriminate,” he said, during his session. “I was able to connect the dots why so many kids become criminalized: food.”

At times employees may feel their work doesn’t make a difference, but Chef Jeff’s speech reinforces how cafeteria staff play an essential role in providing proper nutrition, mentorship and love to students. “We must plug the prison pipeline and a good way to start is through nutritional meals,” Chef Jeff shares.
