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 www.students4soup.ca (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.
