ABC's Daytime Emmy Award-winning talk show "The Chew" has all you need to know to enhance your cooking as well as your life with an all-new instant upgrades show, a bonanza of barbecue options for summer entertaining, and sizzling celebrities.
The Daytime Emmy Award-winning co-hosts are Mario Batali, Michael Symon, Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall and Daphne Oz.
On Tuesday, June 28, "The Chew" highlights the Summer of Service campaign. Daphne takes a trip to The Studio School in NYC, where students get a dose of the core curriculum in the kitchen through the kitchen science lab program.
ABC and Youth Service America are working together to inspire kids to apply for a $500 Summer of Service grant to help make their communities healthier, greener and stronger. If you know a young change-maker between the ages of 5-18, tell them and their parents to apply for a $500 Summer of Service grant (at www.ysa.org/beinspired) to help continue their work toward creating a brighter tomorrow.
