Over 260 Students to Compete in Ninth Annual Jr Iron Chef VT Competition

Ready, set, chop! On Saturday, March 19, 58 middle and high school teams will compete in this year’s Jr Iron Chef VT. In its ninth year, this youth culinary competition was one of the first in the nation to focus on local food and school meals. Participation has more than doubled since its founding, and teams now come from every corner of the state. It has challenged and inspired nearly 3,000 kids to connect with where food comes from, cook from scratch, and eat healthy, local foods.

This despicable bill is a direct attack on Vermonters' right to simple, factual information about the food we eat and feed our families.
