Torres was honored at the Annual Taste of Hope event in 2017
In 2017, Torres was honored at the Annual Taste of Hope event, which took place in New York City. The Taste of Hope Event is the American Cancer Society’s signature event that is dedicated to raising funds in the battle against cancer. Each year, the Society honors two individuals: a Culinary Honoree and a Cancer Survivor. In honor of being chosen, Torres stated that she plans to continue to help ill individuals and to empower women. “Everyone feels like they’re in a dark spot in their life. So, when they told me they were honoring me, I said ‘Miri, you have a stage to put this idea out there’,” she said.
