CONGRATULATIONS to our national Cooking up Change® champions!!! On June 9, 2014, Orange County’s first place team from Valley High School competed at the national Cooking up Change® competition in Washington, D.C. This makes it the third consecutive year in a row that Orange County and Valley High School have taken home the national title!
Thank you to those that helped make the event a huge success-- our generous hosts, Northgate Gonzalez Markets, Chef Mentors, judges, volunteers, and all of the sponsors that continue to support Kid Healthy and the goals of Cooking up Change®.
