An exciting event to convene our community around school food.

Chefs and School Nutrition Managers from across Durham will form teams and develop a unique and delicious recipe - a meal in a bowl - to compete in the inaugural DURHAM BOWLS competition.

The rules of the competition are written by Mr. Jim Keaten, Director of Child Nutrition for Durham Public Schools (DPS). Teams will be asked to meet the same strict requirements Mr. Keaten faces when developing recipes for students in Durham. That means a tight budget, limited kitchen tools, and strict nutritional requirements. It won't be easy, but the experienced School Nutrition Staff and the chefs of "America's Foodiest Small Town" are up for the challenge!

Attend the unveiling of these new and innovative recipes! Teams will offer tastings of their Bowl, and a panel of high-powered judges (DPS students) will present the awards. Toriano and Venice are representing team light blue.
