DAYANNY DE LA CRUZ,
CENTERPLATE(1) EXECUTIVE CHEF
AT HARD ROCK STADIUM IN MIAMI, ON-SITE SERVICES (UNITED STATES)
— The first female Head Chef to have managed the kitchens of the Super Bowl, in February 2020, Dayanny De La Cruz and a team of 100+ chefs introduced 65,000+ fans to the tastes of regional South Florida cuisine. In addition to the many products from local suppliers, the offering included vegetarian dishes, including the ImpossibleTM Burger. With increasingly personalized services and major initiatives to phase out single-use plastic, such as replacing cups and bottles with aluminum, fans of one of the most famous sporting events in the world were offered a diverse, sustainable and unforgettable experience
— Since March 2020, faced with Covid-19-related event cancellations, the Chef and her team redirected their efforts to produce nearly 10,000 meals a day for homebound senior citizens, working in close collaboration with Miami-Dade County and DeliverLean. They also partnered with the Miami Dolphins Foundation to produce boxed meals for local schools, shelters and missions. As of August 31, more than 1 million meals had been distributed among the different programs.
