Kudos for Cooking with Kids & School Lunches!
January 12, 2012: Last semester Cooking with Kids’ Green & White Fettuccine with Tomato Basil Sauce and Green Salad was voted in to the top 10 best lunches by Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, and went on to be picked by Jamie and his team as the best school lunch from last semester!
June 15, 2011: Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced the winners in First Lady Michelle Obama’s Recipes for Healthy Kids competition, a national contest to promote healthy eating among children. We are proud that Sweeney Elementary School’s Lentils of the Southwest is a second place winner! Cooking with Kids’ staff worked with chef Rocky Durham and students from Sandra Sena’s 5th grade class to develop this delicious recipe for Lentils of the Southwest (click here for school cafeteria recipe).
