Phoenix students are rewriting the recipe for school food.

Cooking up Change challenges high school culinary students to create healthy, great-tasting meals that meet the real-life requirements of the national school meal program. Cooking up Change serves up life-changing opportunities, helps students realize their own potential and puts student voices front and center in the national dialogue about school food.

The winning meal will be served to the district’s 33,927 students, and the winning team will travel to Washington, D.C., for the national finals to show off their culinary skills and engage with health and education leaders, the culinary community and Congress.

Cooking up Change Phoenix is hosted by Barry Goldwater High School with support from Deer Valley Unified School District. This is Phoenix’s second time participating.
