The Porcelain Doll pumpkin, bred to help battle breast cancer, will headline at healthcare chef’s farmers’ market class this fall.
Billed as the world’s first pink pumpkin, the Porcelain Doll hybrid variety of pumpkin is tied to a cause: the battle with breast cancer. Pumpkin growers agree to donate a percentage of the price of every pink pumpkin they sell to the Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation, which has been helping to fund breast cancer research projects since 2012.
Nazim Khan, executive chef at Bryan Health in Lincoln, Neb., found out about the pink pumpkin project through an employee from the hospital’s radiology department. #breastcancer #ClinicalNutrition #Chefs #Education
