Food Network Star! Stomp the Yard Celebrity! FREE Dallas Family Event in June!
Juneteenth Cultural Festival to provide free entertainment and dialysis-friendly cooking demonstration with Fresenius Medical Care Spokesperson and Food Network Star, Chef Aaron McCargo, Jr.
To help promote healthy, flavorful diets for dialysis patients, Chef McCargo will put on two live cooking demonstrations to show local dialysis patients, and their friends and families, how to add variety and bold flavor to their diets, so they can enjoy eating, even with the limits placed on them by kidney failure. Aaron McCargo, Jr. won season four of “The Next Food Network Star” in 2008, and his own Food Network show, “Big Daddy’s House,” premiered in August of 2008. In 2011, Aaron partnered with Fresenius Medical Care to inspire people living with chronic kidney disease to live a better life on dialysis by maintaining a healthy diet.
