Community Chefs


We Are Cooking Up Something Special!

The seventh annual Community Chefs event is coming up on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at Anderson Country Club at 5:30 p.m. The event features over 50 men from the community, each offering a unique dish for attendees to sample.


Community Chefs has raised nearly $415,000 for the Community Hospital Anderson Foundation over the past six 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.

Stop the Bleed

The Stop the Bleed campaign was launched in 2015 by the White House. The purpose of the campaign is to build national resilience by better preparing the public to save lives. This is done by raising awareness of basic actions to stop life-threatening bleeding following emergencies and man-made or natural disasters. The Community Hospital Anderson Foundation is providing Stop the Bleed education, training and kits to all area schools. The main focus of the training is to help encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency and to know the appropriate ways to control bleeding until medical professionals can take over.
