Los Amigos Students Take Part in the 6th Annual Cooking Up Change Cooking Competition.

Team Members,  Michael Ramos, Juan Mayorquin and Christopher Villalpando competed with 8 Local Orange County High Schools last month in the 6th Annual Cooking Up Change Cooking Competition. Participants were given the task of creating a Healthy Meal with a low caloric, low sodium count, and a cost restraint of $1.25 or less; these students took Soy Meatballs; added spices and locally grown ingredients and created "NOT-Cho Average Nachos" (a carne asada style dish). Students from High Schools that offer Culinary Programs present their dishes to a panel of Judges, speak about their menus and are judged accordingly, winners then complete at the National Level where their Menus are presented before Congress in hopes of having them implemented in school cafeterias across the Country as an appealing, tasty, healthy choice for students at Lunch Time. Great effort by the Los Amigos Team and we look forward to competition again next year.
