D'Arrigo California Announces Cooking for the Cure Initiative; Claudia Pizarro-Villalobos, Candice Walker, and Dr. Dorraya El-Ashr Comment
SALINAS, CA - D’Arrigo California is combining its passion for healthy produce with its dedication to giving back in a recent initiative. The company has teamed up with Proportional Plate influencer Candice Walker to host a virtual and interactive cooking class featuring Andy Boy produce that will ultimately support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).
“D’Arrigo California is thrilled to get into the kitchen with Candice Walker of Proportional Plate to ‘Cook for a Cure’ benefiting the BCRF, a 22-year long partner of our company,” stated Claudia Pizarro-Villalobos, Corporate Communications for D’Arrigo California. “We know that maintaining a well-balanced diet high in fruits, vegetables, and plant-based protein sources can help lower the risk of breast cancer and even improve outcomes after a diagnosis. Our goal is to educate consumers on how to make easy, delicious, and nutritious recipes using our Andy Boy produce.”
On Wednesday, October 27 from 4 p.m.–5:30 p.m. PST, Candice Walker will walk participants through a step-by-step process of how to make Turkey Lettuce Wraps with Thai Chili Ginger Sauce, Roasted Sweet Baby Broccoli with Piquillo Pepper Romesco, and a Blender Green Juice.
Those interested can register here and reserve their spot for $15, which will be given directly to BCRF. BCRF will email an official donation receipt for tax purposes and the process is fast, easy, and secure, explained a press release. Each registered participant will receive the cooking class link, a printable grocery list, and recipe cards one week before the class. The class will be available on demand until Friday, November 26 with paid registration.
“Our goal is to raise awareness and to show our support for all those who have been affected by breast cancer. We’re excited to have consumers and customers will join us by participating in the ‘Cooking for a Cure’ class with Andy Boy produce, especially since all proceeds will benefit BCRF,” stated Walker.
Here are some more details of the collaboration.
“BCRF-funded research has shown that there are steps you can take to reduce risk for breast cancer,” said BCRF Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Dorraya El-Ashry. “We know that proper nutrition and plant-based diets—or diets high in leafy greens, cruciferous vegetables and legumes—play a key role in breast cancer prevention.”
We at ANUK love to see these two passions working in harmony, and we will continue bringing the latest as more news comes to light.
