Community Chefs

We met our goal - thank you!

The sixth annual Community Chefs event was held on Saturday, September 15, 2018 at the Anderson Country Club at 5:30 p.m. The event featured 60 men from the community, each offering a unique dish for attendees to sample. Thanks to everyone who supported the chefs, we surpassed our goal and raised $102,000!


Community Chefs has raised $312,581 for the Community Hospital Anderson Foundation over the past five years. The event has benefited multiple causes. This year the proceeds will benefit the following causes:

School Nurses' Funds

Several years ago, the Community Hospital Anderson Foundation initiated a discretionary nurses' fund for each public school in Madison County. With these funds, nurses at each school are able to purchase items for the medical needs of the students whose families might not be able to afford it, such as new glasses, an inhaler or even something as simple as clean underwear and socks.

Oncology Patients

Community Hospital Anderson provides state-of-the-art cancer treatment to our patients here in Madison County. However, our commitment to our patients extends beyond their medical care. A cancer diagnosis can be devastating to a patient and family. The Community Hospital Anderson Foundation has established a fund that can be used to help care for some of these families' extra needs that may arise as a result of the cancer diagnosis. This can mean anything from purchasing a wig for a patient to paying the patient's utility bills when he/she has been unable to work.

Community Farm

The farm at Community Hospital Anderson includes a diversified vegetable farm located on the hospital campus with the purpose of supplying fresh, wholesome vegetables to the hospital food service team and the community at large. The first phase of the farm was implemented in the spring and summer of 2018 with plans to continually expand the project in the years to come.
