Media coverage of the 2016 annual cooking competition for middle and high school students.
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.
Senator Pat Roberts (R-Kansas) introduced a bill last week that attempts to permanently strike down Vermont's first-in-the-nation GMO labeling law, set to take effect in just 4 short months. This despicable bill is a direct attack on Vermonters' right to simple, factual information about the food we eat and feed our families.
