In 2013, city clerk Susana Mendoza and then-comptroller Judy Baar Topinka combined their two Culinary Kids programs to educate grade school students on the benefits of eating healthy. Since that time Culinary Kids has expanded to include high school culinary arts students as well.
"It's all about these kids and good culinary habits, eating habits, staying fit and active, and we've been able to bring this show on the road to many schools now, Chicago Public Schools in particular," Mendoza said.
"We're giving children who are involved in culinary arts an opportunity to put their skills to work, working with some of the best chefs in the country.
"It's just so much fun. The best part is seeing the kids at work and then getting to eat all their delicious food."
