Students & Producers Connect in Soup Challenge


 Last week we kicked off the Students4Soup Challenge and an exciting opportunity for students and teachers to get involved in the thrill of the Challenge by creating an original soup made of locally sourced ingredients. Students work in teams of 2 to 4 with one team from each school competing in the final regional competition held at Host Partner Georgian College, on December 5, 2014.

Teens are a powerful sector of our population with influence on household food purchases and developing eating patterns that stay with them for a lifetime. The Students4Soup Challenge connects secondary students with their local food supply, provokes not only a conversation around the health and economic benefits of local food and provides exposure to potential career opportunities in the food industry.

This high calibre event promises to be a highly enriching experience for the students and their teacher with great prizing which is outlined on the web site at (will be launched on November 3, 2014) and;

• hands-on learning and connecting with local producers in the community;

• coaching and mentorship from a senior Culinary Program student;

• experience in a food lab on the day of the event;

• networking with fellow competitors and community stakeholders at the complimentary lunch and awards ceremony; and • the thrill of being judged by top executive chefs.

PLUS! Each winning team will take a set of professional chef knives back to their school.
