John has participated as a chef for the GAAND Nutritious & Delicious Gala scholarship fundraiser since at least 2010 donating both his time, culinary skills, and delicious food. Every year he has donated and prepared more than one amazing dish for about 200 attendees to sample. He has also helped GAAND out multiple times with media coverage for this event. Even when he was not appearing in news segments, he assisted by providing dishes for GAAND to showcase. He is someone GAAND can count on if we need a speaker or assistance with any event. John has always been a generous supporter of the dietetic profession.
