While healthy eating can be a challenge for kids and parents, elementary school students across the country are using their creativity and culinary skills to make healthy Asian-Inspired recipes in nutrition partner and Quality of Life Services provider Sodexo’s 2018 Future Chefs Challenge. The national initiative, which is into its eighth year, was created to get students thinking about making healthy food choices while also encouraging them to get active and creative in the kitchen!

This year, students from 256 school districts joined over 2,600 other students representing over 1,300 Sodexo-served school sites in 30 states nationally in this fun and educational challenge.

School districts across the country have held Future Chefs events throughout February and March of this year. The winning student from each participating district was considered for regional finalist awards, and the selected regional finalists competed to become one of five national finalists. These five national finalists are competing for your vote from April 23rd-29th.

Congratulations to this year’s National Future Chefs Winner Julissa Rocha from Lawton Public Schools in Oklahoma!
