On Friday, November 9, you're invited to join Healthy Schools Campaign for the most meaningful meal you'll have all year. At Cooking up Change Chicago, HSC's flagship healthy cooking contest and annual benefit, teams of Chicago high school students will show you their vision for the future of school food. Students compete to create a healthy, great-tasting school meal on a tight budget, then present those meals to a panel of judges that includes the city's top chefs.
You'll meet the student chefs, sample the creative and healthy dishes they've created and go home with a new perspective on school food -- and on what teenagers can do. The winning team will travel to Washington, D.C. to compete in the national finals and present their meal to Congress at a briefing on school food policy.
Guests at Cooking up Change will also raise a glass and enjoy seasonal samples from Chicago’s leading caterers while taking in unparalleled views of the Chicago skyline from the Skyline Loft at the Bridgeport Art Center, a stunning event space with soaring ceilings and historic details.
This flagship Chicago competition launches a series of competitions across the country throughout the winter and spring.
With limited ingredient lists, tight deadlines and real-life constraints, students in Cooking up Change are re-writing the recipe for school food. We invite you to be part of the excitement!
