Junior Chef Program Overview


Every year since 2002 Andy Cagnetta has invited his friends, family and peers to join him for an Italian family pasta dinner to raise money to feed individuals and families in Broward County. Over the past 18 years, this event has raised 1.5 million dollars for LifeNet4Families.

This year, Andy’s 18th Annual Family Pasta Dinner will be held at the Signature Grand in Davie, Florida on Sunday, February 16, 2020. The money raised directly benefits LifeNet4Families and their efforts to provide food and other basic resources to people in need in Broward County.


Introducing high school and middle school students to an opportunity where they can volunteer their time to help others and learn a sense of gratitude and empathy for the needs of the less fortunate in their community.
