The fourth annual TG Eco Top Chef program pairs middle school students with professional chefs to learn about food, farming, food equity, and sustainability. With chef partners, students create a fresh, local, organic, seasonal, non-GMO meal that far surpasses USDA nutritional guidelines within school lunch budgets. The final challenge tasks each team and partner chef to prepare and plate a school lunch menu for a team of judges. One team is then selected as the Eco Top Chef Champion.
