-aged kids attending from a number of Bay Area youth-serving organizations. Teachers, administrators, and health officials from around the Bay Area will also be in attendance.

 “  Dinner and a Movie  
The Youth Gala event will officially launch C.H.E.F.'s innovative new FUEL series, which is the first youth-inspired educational product designed to fight childhood obesity. The FUEL series, which makes childhood obesity relevant and compelling by focusing on kids talking to kids about making healthy choices, will come to life at this event through a series of highly interactive, entertaining, fun, and educational activities that will be held throughout the evening.

The event will commence with buses of young guests arriving at the Exploratorium from youth-serving organizations in and around the Bay area, including The Boys and Girls Club-San Francisco, Leadership Excellence-Oakland, Gallileo High School Wellness Program, and Big Brother Big Sisters-San Francisco.

Once in the Exploratorium, the young attendees will be served a variety of healthy, great tasting appetizers and beverages as a way to address the importance of good nutrition. At the same time, celebrity chef, Claud Mann, an engaging personality from the popular TBS show "Dinner and a Movie", will conduct a cooking demonstration to address how kids can prepare and eat great food that's healthy.

As the evening progresses, several Bay-area organizations, some of which were profiled in the FUEL series, will also participate in the event. Common Sense Media will address media literacy and demonstrate how youth can be more media-savvy. People's Grocery will discuss the importance of positive activism and share ways that youth can get involved in making healthy changes in their communities. Destiny Arts will address the importance of physical activity and body movement through a dance demonstration and performance to engage the kids in physical activity. Seattle-based Reel Grrls will demonstrate their media technology skills through videotaped interviews they'll conduct during the evening.

According to Larry Clark, President and CEO of C.H.E.F., "As a nonprofit organization dedicated to making a difference in the lives of our nation's youth, C.H.E.F. is delighted to be hosting this innovative, educational, and entertaining event. What makes this event truly special is its practical, hands-on approach to addressing one of the most critical health issues affecting kids today. Like the new FUEL series, this event focuses on kids talking to kids about making healthy choices, in a way that is interactive, creative, and a lot of fun. Ultimately, we want to show kids what they can do to take control of their own health."

About the FUEL series
Targeted to kids ages 10-18, FUEL is an edgy, upbeat and powerful series that empowers youth to take action to improve their own lives, and gives them the skills, knowledge, and power to radically transform themselves and their world. The four-part series includes the titles Skin Deep, Energy for Action, The Perfect Machine, and Taking on the World, and deals with the topics of media literacy, self-esteem, body image, healthy eating, nutrition, physical activity, and positive activism. Currently available in a version for the school market, each FUEL Educator's Module includes a VHS and DVD video and an easy-to-use Educator's Guide with five dynamic lessons. C.H.E.F. is also exploring entry into the home market with a parent version of the FUEL series, and has initiated discussions with several prospective brand partners.
