Cooking Up Change, the Healthy Schools Campaign–backed competition to improve school lunch, has held its final three regional qualifiers in the cities of Winston-Salem, NC; Anaheim, CA; and Memphis, fielding winners from Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools, Santa Ana Valley High School, and Craigmont High School, respectively. These student-led teams, along with the victors from five earlier qualifiers, are advancing to the national competition in Washington, D.C., where they will present their versions of healthy school lunch, prepared within the real-life constraints of limited ingredient lists and tight prep times. The James Beard Foundation is proud to be the official culinary partner of the competition.
