For Second Year, JBF Partners with Cooking Up ChangeJBF Editors
December 04, 2012
For the second year in a row, we're joining Cooking Up Change, a nationwide competition among high school students to improve school lunch, as its official culinary partner. Started by the Chicago-based Healthy Schools Campaign, the contest takes place in six cities and invites student-led teams to craft delicious school lunches within the real-life constraints of limited ingredient lists and tight deadlines. Finalists from each city will compete in the national competition in Washington, D.C. in May of 2013.
The first (and biggest) regional qualifier took place in Chicago last month, with the team from Washington High School, pictured above, winning first place. You can read more about the Chicago competition here.
