Student Cooking Contest Spotlights Healthy School Meals

Healthy Schools Campaign and the National Farm to School Network are hosting the Cooking up Change National Healthy Cooking Contest, which challenges teams of high school and college students to create a healthful and delicious school meal that meets nutrition standards based on the Institute of Medicine’s latest recommendations, incorporates a local food item, draws from ingredients commonly available to food service, and can be easily prepared in a school kitchen. Six teams of finalists, chosen from a national pool of applicants, will prepare their recipes for a prestigious panel of judges in Detroit at Taking Root, the 5th National Farm to Cafeteria conference. Winners will be announced at the conference, and the teams’ delicious creations will be sampled by conference participants. This contest is generously supported by Applegate Farms and Chartwells-Thompson Hospitality.
