Setting up for last year's event ChefThymeSavor.com
I have always been very passionate about Education. So I was excited to be invited back to the Cooking up Change Culinary Competition.
The Bridgeport Arts Center ChefThymeSavor.com
15 Chicago Public Schools send culinary students to represent their school at this energy filled and heated competition. If you are a foodie, you should check out this event. Cooking up Change is being held at the beautiful Bridgeport Arts Center on October 30th. Toast the evening away in this beautifully lit loft space with city views, wonderful music, a raffle and an orchestra of youth creating a beautiful symphony of food to enjoy.
10 cities participate in their individual culinary competition for the privilege to travel to Washington D.C., cook for the legislature and hold discussions revolving around school lunches. What we feed our children on a daily basis in school is such an important issue. Aramark and The James Beard Foundation are 2 of the 3 Gold sponsors of this event. 350 students nationwide cook up over 1.35 million meals. Under a tight budget, they prepare a tasty school lunch that is healthy and nutritious and delicious.

Healthy Schools Campaign launched Cooking up Change in Chicago in 2007 to engage students and the community in a dialogue about critical changes needed in our nation’s school meal program. Since that time, stronger school food nutrition standards have been implemented, and Cooking up Change students continue to lead the way by re-imagining school meals that are healthy, delicious and fun.
