Chef Marshall Around Town:

We at the Chef Marshall O’Brien group have consistently focused on supporting the pillars of our communities – police, fire, schools and childcare. When they get the support and resources to take care of their employees, they can better support us. We recently taught a series of Smart Nutrition classes for the St. Louis Park Fire Department.

Most people don’t realize that due to the hazards of their job, U.S. firefighters have a twelve year shorter life expectancy than non-firefighters. The three top killers of firefighters are cancer, cardiac disease and mental illness. We are doing everything we can to help reverse this with our Smart Nutrition program to help them combat the hazardous chemicals, smoke and stress of the job, and so can you. There are many initiatives that support firefighters, and in Minnesota is leading the charge to bring awareness and support to those keeping us safe.
