August 14, 2015

Ever wish you could try the winning dishes from Cooking up Change? Well, here’s your chance. Each month, we’ll share a Cooking up Change recipe so you can try the meal at home and taste firsthand how these students are changing the future of school food.

Healthy Schools Campaign’s Cooking up Change contest challenges high school culinary students to create a healthy and delicious school meal that can be served in a school cafeteria. Cooking up Change is not only fun and educational, it also adds student voices to the national conversation about school food and helps. Through Cooking up Change, these young chefs not only hone their culinary skills but develop leadership, public speaking and team building skills and build relationships and networks that will last them a lifetime.

Today, we present the fruit side dish from Detroit’s local winner, a fresh mixture of oranges, peaches, kiwi and yogurt — an easy and healthy dish that’s perfect for late summer. Read more about the Detroit team’s path to the Cooking up Change National Finals.
