Description

NO ONE KNOWS SCHOOL FOOD BETTER THAN THE STUDENTS WHO BUY IT


One event gives them a voice in what gets served

The Real Food for Kids Culinary Challenge is an annual event that gives students in the National Capital Region a platform to influence and change what is served in their school cafeterias. This year, 27 teams from 5 school districts will do just that.

The “challenge” at the heart of this competition is the same one faced by school food professionals every day: to craft healthy and delicious menu items that conform to USDA guidelines and adhere to strict per-meal budgets. Lunch entries are judged by a panel of students, school food professionals, chefs, and local luminaries. The winning dish is featured in school cafeterias across the region the following year.

Since 2014, hundreds of middle and high school students from across the Region have competed in the Real Food for Kids Culinary Challenge. Along the way they have created exciting new school lunch options for thousands of area students and influenced school food professionals to embrace healthier options.

Tickets are free but space is limited so secure your space by registering today!
