Cooking up Change® is a national healthy cooking competition launched by Healthy Schools Campaign.  It challenges teams of high school culinary students to create menu items that are not only healthy, but also meet nutrition guidelines and the budgetary constraints (about $1 per meal) that School Food Services programs across the country face today.  It’s a program that allows students to be involved in the conversation as campuses across the country strive to serve healthful, great-tasting school food that their classmates would enjoy eating at school.
