The afternoon showcased results of a two-year federal-grant-funded program to rethink the school lunch program in Seattle Public Schools. It included a cooking competition featuring local celebrity chefs coaching teams of children tasked with creating a healthy and affordable school lunch (see attached photos).

Bastyr University was well represented, with nutrition and culinary arts student Rachel Davies serving as an assistant chef and Assistant Professor Cynthia Lair, BA, CHN, as a guest judge.
