This June, test your culinary skills in Beyond Hunger’s Healthy Chef Challenge…Home Edition!  We’ve expanded this annual cooking competition with a new twist—instead of just featuring local chefs battling to make a 5-star entrée out of Food Pantry ingredients, community members can join in and get creative in the kitchen.  

The Healthy Chef Challenge is a way for us to spread awareness about the importance of good nutrition and have some big community fun at the same time. It highlights our Nutrition Education and Cooking Class programming which empowers families with the knowledge needed to select and prepare healthy meals on a restricted budget. 

Ingredient Pick Up - June 11th 
Submission Due - June 14th at 9 AM
Voting Period - June 15th - 24th 
Winner Announced - June 25th

The Healthy Chef Challenge Home Edition is free and open to the community. Participants will be split into categories: kids/teens, amateurs, and professionals. You’ll have June 11-13, a whole weekend, to make your dish, take photos or capture funny reaction videos and come up with a catchy title and description.  Judging will be determined by online votes. You have to “sell” your entry – creativity is the key. Our event sponsor, The Chopping Block, will even feature each champion’s recipe as part of their July public virtual cooking class.  

Sign up for entries is now CLOSED.  If you have any questions, contact
