UGA and partners host school lunch cooking competition

March 7th, 2015

Local chefs will take on the School Lunch Challenge creating tasty dishes that meet USDA requirements for the National School Lunch Program, and locals will have a chance to sample the creations at the cooking competition March 28 from 2-4 p.m. in the cafeteria of Barrow Elementary School.

Building on the increased public interest in school lunches, and inspired by the ongoing exhibition, "Food, Power, Politics: The Story of School Lunch" currently on display at the University of Georgia Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries, the Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies, the Clarke County School District, the Athens Land Trust, Athens Farm to School and UGA's College of Family and Consumer Sciences have partnered to plan an educational event to engage the Athens community with the past, present, and future of the National School Lunch Program.
