Following two years of virtual competition, in its tenth year, the Culinary Challenge returns to a live event open to the public.

Silver Diner will sponsor and participate in 10th Annual Culinary Challenge with judges Kevin Tien, David Hagedorn, Shelby McCrone, Stefano Marzano, Shane Logan and Dahlia Badt. Chef Ype Von Hengst of Silver Diner will serve as the student advocate in helping students problem solve and providing some tips and recommendations.

Real Food for Kids, a nonprofit focused on elevating school food, hosts its 10th Annual Culinary Challenge. Six teams from Fairfax, Arlington, Loudoun and Montgomery County high schools and middle schools will compete to create a school lunch dish that meets USDA guidelines. The winning dish will be featured on the schools’ lunch menus.

On March 5th, 2022, at Hayfield Secondary School in Arlington, VA, the 10th Annual Real Food for Kids Culinary Challenge will take place as this year’s teams will go before a panel of celebrity chefs, food critics, school nutrition professionals, and fellow students for the chance to have their dish served in cafeterias across the DC region.
You can come have a taste and judge for yourself which team should go home with the top prize!
Also, enjoy an informative panel discussion, “Collaboration + Innovation: Keys to the Future of School Food”, an exclusive book signing with Ellie Krieger, and much more.

The event is free and open to the public.More information on how to register for this year’s Culinary Challenge on Saturday, March 5 here.
