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!
