Cooking up Change

Cooking up Change

Cooking up Change is a dynamic program that challenges high school culinary students to create healthy school meals that taste great and appeal to their fellow students.

Celebrating Student Creativity

Cooking up Change challenges high school culinary students to create healthy, delicious meals that meet the real-life requirement of the national school lunch program — and taste great to their classmates.

Started in 2007 as an annual cooking competition, Cooking up Change highlights the ingenuity of student chefs, celebrates the promise of healthy schools and provides a forum for an ongoing, student-centered conversation about the next generation of school meals.

A New Virtual Format

Cooking up Change is now a year-round platform featuring healthy, delicious school meals designed by inspiring student chefs. Hear from these talented students how they designed their meals and prepare a delicious meal at home using a Cooking up Change recipe.

 

Join students from across the nation!

If you’re interested in submitting a menu for the showcase, please contact Sara Porter at sara@healthyschoolscampaign.org.
