The tray takeover came to St. Louis over the weekend! The city hosted a local Cooking up Change healthy cooking contest as part of a community health resources fair.

The Clyde C. Miller Career Academy High School seniors and friends also met St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay who commended their hard work!
“We just wanted to create something that was healthier and elegant to open up our peers’ eyes,” said Rose on their inspiration. “It is a way to open up their eyes to see that there are different forms of cooking other than frying or deep frying.”
Congratulations Courtney and Rose!
