The Winning Moment!

November 23, 2009

In the weeks since our Cooking up Change healthy cooking contest, we’ve heard again and again how much guests were overwhelmed by the student chefs — not just with their talent but with their incredible energy, warmth and pride in sharing the healthy meals and cookies they created.  No matter how much we try to describe the students’ energy and grace, we can’t quite do it justice!

Check out this clip of the winning moment, when the student chefs of Tilden High School accepted their award:

The Tilden team's meal of Chicken Jambalaya with Jalapeno Cornbread and Cucumber Salad will be served in all Chicago public high schools on Jan. 27, 2010 and on Capitol Hill later in the year! Team members will travel to DC to meet with assistant White House chef Sam Kass and speak up about the need for healthy, tasty school food.

Congratulations to the winning student chefs!
