Happy fall everybody! It’s the time of year for pumpkin-spiced everything, the Big E, and of course, school open houses! Our FoodCorps Service Member, Greta Shwachman, has been making the rounds at the open houses, spreading the word about ChicopeeFRESH and engaging parents in a brand new recipe contest!
We’re asking parents to submit tasty, nutritious recipes that ideally use local ingredients and are simple to prepare. Easy right? Not exactly, but we are confident that Chicopee parents are up for the challenge!
The goal of the contest is to find delicious, kid-approved recipes that students will enjoy in the cafeteria. The top three recipes will be taste tested with students, and the most popular recipe will be featured on the school menu. The winning parent, in addition to well-deserved bragging rights, will receive a $25 gift card to Big Y, with the two runners up receiving $15 gift cards.
Stay tuned for the results of the contest! We can’t wait to see all of the entries, and more importantly to feature a kid-approved family recipe on our menu!
