Annual Jr Iron Chef seeks student participants

Are you a middle school or high school student looking to show off your skills in the kitchen? Applications are now being accepted for the 6th Annual Jr. Iron Chef VT. Jr Iron Chef VT is a statewide celebration of school food programs, local agriculture, student leadership, and the culinary arts.

Jr Iron Chef VT invites teams of middle and high school students to create delicious dishes using seasonal, local ingredients that can be served in school cafeterias. Winning teams will have an opportunity to feature their recipes in the Vermont Statehouse Cafeteria.

By engaging students’ creative and competitive spirits, Jr Iron Chef VT promotes healthy eating habits and increases awareness of Vermont agriculture. All proceeds from the event will strengthen Farm to School programs across the state, supporting the health of families and farms in our communities.

Jr Iron Chef VT is hosted by the Burlington School Food Project and Vermont FEED. It will be held at the Champlain Valley Expo on Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013 from 9 am-3:30 pm.  Team slots are limited and will be accepted on a first-come, first serve basis.

All proceeds from the event will support statewide Farm to School initiatives led by Vermont FEED and the Burlington School Food Project.
