Some exciting things have been happening!
As some of you know, our family entered the Ben’s Beginners cooking contest back in October. During the contest, families from all over the country entered videos cooking together. The contest was created to unite families and encourage healthier meal choices. In November I was super excited to find out that I was a top 25 finalist.
I recently found out that I was selected as a grand prize winner. It was like a dream. I won a $30,000 cafeteria makeover for my school and $15,000 for my family. A Home Town Celebration was held at my school and I was able to meet and prepare my recipe with celebrity Chef Marcus Samuelsson. It was an amazing honor and the highlight of my day. I’d like to thank Chef Marcus Samuelsson and the Ben’s Beginners program for such an amazing opportunity for me and my school.
