We’re postponing Cooking up Change
As you may know, Chicago Public Schools students have been out of school since Oct. 17 as a result of the ongoing teachers’ strike. In order to give our student chefs adequate time to fully prepare for the contest once they return to school, we have decided to postpone Cooking up Change. The event will not be taking place on Nov. 9.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. We are looking at dates in early 2020. Stay tuned for more information!
For the first time ever, you’ll get to watch the teams of student chefs present their creative menus to the judging panel.
You’ll get to taste the students’ amazing creations and talk to them about their inspiration.
You’ll be there to cheer on your favorites as the winning teams are announced and applaud all the student chefs for proving that delicious and nutritious school meals are possible.
