JBF News: NYC Public Schools Recipe Contest Semifinals

Recipe contest Now that the deadline for our healthy school lunch recipe contest has come and gone, it's time for the fun to begin: the judging! On Monday night at the New York City Food and Finance High School, over 25 plant-based recipes were prepared and served to a panel of judges that included pastry chef François Payard, NYC public schools executive chef Jorge Collazo, and elementary and high school students. The judges whittled down the entries to ten finalists, which will be cooked and sampled at the Beard House tomorrow evening. Stay tuned for the the results and photos! Special thanks to our partners, New York Coalition for Healthy School Food, the NYC Office of SchoolFood, Candle Café/79, and the New York City Food and Finance High School, for helping our kids eat well.

Eat-Q: School Lunch

School lunchWelcome to our second installment of school lunch Eat-Q! Yesterday we asked you to guess who appeared on the first lunchbox. For those of you who picked A, you're correct! The first metal lunchbox, produced by the Aladdin Company in 1950, featured a decal of the cowboy hero Hopalong Cassidy. The sales were so huge that by 1954, the company was able to switch to lithography instead of using decals for the rest of their lunchboxes. To read more about the history of lunchboxes, click here. On to the next question! Check back tomorrow morning when we reveal the answer! [poll id="5"]
