About The National Future Chefs Competition

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 comfort food recipes in nutrition partner and Quality of Life Services provider Sodexo’s 2018 Future Chefs Challenge. The national initiative, which is going onto 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!

Last year, students from 256 school districts joined over 2,500 other students representing over 1,300 Sodexo-served school sites in 30 states nationally in this fun and educational challenge!
