LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — LAUSD high school students will go head-to-head in a cooking contest Thursday for a chance to participate in a national cooking competition!
Six high schools – Banning, Doyle, Marshall, Polytechnic, Santee and West Adams – will compete against each other starting at 9:30 a.m. at Los Angeles Trade Technical College.
The winning students will win an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. for the “Cooking Up Change” National Competition on June 10 at the U.S. Department of Education.
“Cooking Up Change” challenges high school culinary students to create healthy menu items that meet USDA guidelines and School Food Services programs’ budget constraints.
Along with the trip, the winning school’s menu will also be served at all LAUSD schools during the 2013-2014 school year. There’s also a chance that it could be served at the U.S. House of Representatives cafeteria.
