“Ready, Set, Kids…Cookoff” This Sunday at Oak Park


A unique foodie event is hitting Sacramento this Sunday, October 21 from 2-5 p.m. in Oak Park (3rd Ave. between 34th St. and Broadway). The inaugural “Ready, Set, Kids…Cookoff” is a competition pairing local student teams with renowned Sacramento chefs Noah Zonca of The Kitchen, John Bays of Red Rabbit and Patrick Mulvaney of Mulvaney’s B&L. Each of the student-chef teams will prepare meals for local celebrity judges.

The students participating have been involved in nutrition and entrepreneurship education at Hiram Johnson High School, Will C. Wood Middle School and Oak Ridge Elementary through the Fresh Producers program. The kids will be using their knowledge of nutrition to prepare selections for the judges using locally grown produce and products.

Although there won’t be enough of these select meals to go around, there will plenty of food trucks and other vendors to supply those in attendance with healthy food options and entertainment.  

This is a free event for the public, so head on out and support area youth and this great cause.

Ready, Set, Go!

    Okay, I’m a bit jealous. Noah Zonca from the Kitchen? That restaurant is amazing! Sounds like this program will be such a great learning opportunity for these kids.
