OUR STUDENTS ARE CHANGING SCHOOL LUNCH MENUS
And this is the only event where you can see how they do it!
Exhibits open at 10:45 AM
Public Tasting of Student Dishes 11:0 AM – 1:00 PM
Awards Ceremony 12:15 PM
The Real Food for Kids Culinary Challenge is the only event in the country that gives students a platform to influence and change what is served in their school cafeterias. Throughout the National Capital Region, dishes created by middle and high school students for this event are being served to thousands of their peers.
Every day, school food professionals face an array of federal requirements to put school meals in our cafeterias that meet strict nutritional guidelines while adhering to restrictive per-meal budgets. The Real Food for Kids Culinary Challenge gives students the chance to overcome these challenges to tell us what they’d like to see in their school cafeterias. Their success is changing what’s being served in our schools.
21 teams from 7 school districts in the National Capital Region will participate. It’s a taste sensation you won’t want to miss.
