The Sodexo Future Chefs program, which is in its fourth year as a national event, creates positive behavioral changes in students by enabling them to get actively involved in good nutrition. More than 2,000 students, representing approximately 1,000 Sodexo-served schools in 30 states, were selected to participate in 110 local events.
Students at Sodexo-served elementary schools nationwide created healthy and fun sandwich recipes and this one was chosen as one of the five best. Each day this week, we will highlight one of our five finalists.
The finalists are all elementary school students from Sodexo-served school districts across the country, and each created videos of their own healthy sandwich creations which can be seen on a dedicated YouTube channel. Visitors to the site are encouraged to view the finalist videos and vote for their favorite recipe today at http://bit.ly/SodexoFutureChefs
. Public vote will determine the 2014 national winner. Voting is open for one week from Monday, April 28 through Sunday, May 4.
The winning student recipes were considered by a collection of Sodexo K-12 chefs to narrow the field to 35 regional winners, who were further evaluated by a panel of judges to select the five students who would advance to the program’s national phase. Finalists were selected based on the originality, presentation, ease of preparation, kid-friendliness, and healthiness of their recipes.
Our first highlighted finalist is Nicole Garrity from Windsor Locks Public Schools in Windsor Locks, Connecticut. Her recipe is the “Shamrock Sandwich” In describing her inspiration for this sandwich Nicole says that between travel soccer and dance, she is always very active and always looking for something that tastes good and is good for you.
