Smile Foundation, a national level development organisation on Sunday presented the 2nd edition of its initiative 'Cook for a Smile', which is co-presented by Cleo County and endorsed by Michelin star chef Vikas Khanna.

Cook for a Smile is a charity cooking contest wherein corporate CEOs come together with Chef Khanna to cook, contest and raise support for Smile Foundations children.

Corporate leaders also took a day off to don the chefs toques with one mission of providing Nutrition for Better Literacy which would benefit the children of Smile Foundation across India. Funds raised through the campaign will be utilised in providing education and nutrition for 1000 children of the foundation with a mission of 'Nutrition for Better Literacy.'

Commenting on the campaign, Chef Khanna said, Lack of proper nutrition is a fundamental issue and one of the biggest roadblocks for the growth and development for children in our country Cook for Smile has been a big step in helping us reach out to stakeholders and by end of this year I pledge to benefit around 5,000 kids under this initiative.

Chef Khanna divided the participating corporate leaders into two groups. Each group included a team of Smile Foundation kids who enjoyed assisting the participants which brought in added excitement to the competition. Each participant prepared a signature dish of his or her choice in the allotted time and the same was tasted and judged by Khanna.
