The 2014-2015 Cooking up Change season kicks off in Chicago on October 30 at the Bridgeport Art Center!

Last season, 10 cities across the country hosted Cooking up Change contests, and winners traveled to Washington, D.C. for a final cook-off. HSC partnered with the Kids’ Safe and Healthful Foods Project to provide an exciting and meaningful experience for the students. While in D.C, they were featured at a Congressional briefing and even met with their legislators on Capitol Hill. Check out this video to hear more from one of the students who participated.

“This competition helped me realize that you don’t need to be unhealthy to have a good meal.” — Barrosha Boykin (Houston, TX)

Cooking up Change is a dynamic culinary competition that puts student voices front-and-center in the national dialogue about school food. With limited ingredients, tight deadlines and real-life constraints, teams of high school culinary students take on a big challenge: create a delicious, nutritious school lunch that their peers will enjoy.
