HEATHER CARR, 27
EXECUTIVE CHEF, FOOTERS
In 2017, Heather Carr won the Food Network’s critically acclaimed show, “Chopped,” and she is set to compete on “Chopped Champions.” She uses her expertise to give back to the community as a volunteer chef with Work Options for Women, where she teaches basic culinary skills to women in a professional kitchen environment to help qualify them for culinary jobs.
“She is passionate about fostering individuals’ strengths and creating environments of growth,” Footers CEO Anthony Lambatos says. Carr has received national recognition for her zero-waste kitchen and up-cycling and presents at the National Catering Conference Catersource to thousands of industry professionals on how they can incorporate upcycling into their kitchens. She has dedicated herself to We Don’t Waste, a local organization that redistributes leftover food and excess products to more than 100 local food banks and shelters in the Denver Metro area.
