Smith’s family created the foundation to honor him and help Central Pennsylvania students with scholarship money.

“He was in children’s ministry with me so he loved children and he really loved cooking and creating things and bringing people together with food and that is why we did the chili cookoff to remember Alex and help kids with scholarships,” Terri Smith, Alex Smith’s mother, said.

The chili cookoff featured both professional and amateur chefs.
