USDA School-Lunch Contest

The USDA is holding a healthy school lunch contest with plant-based categories.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), in conjunction with Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! campaign, is holding a contest to encourage nutritional experts, chefs, parents, and students to develop recipes for healthy meals to be served in schools. The categories for the recipe submissions include whole grains, dark green or orange vegetables, and dry beans and peas; and meat is purposely excluded from the categories. Submissions are being accepted through the contest’s website through to December 30, 2010, and the winning teams will be invited to prepare their recipes alongside White House chefs.
