Feb 1st, 2013 | Category: News

WHATCOM – In December, Whatcom Farm-to-School and Sustainable Connections kicked-off the Ideal Real Meal Contest, an opportunity for community members to offer their ideas for a delicious school meal, featuring locally grown foods. The contest deadline has been extended to Monday, Feb. 11 at 5 p.m., and is open to all residents of Whatcom County – kids and adults. The menu must use ingredients from a “virtual” pantry of locally sourced winter ingredients. Prizes include a first place cash prize of $100, gift certificates and cooking supplies, and county-wide recognition.  Winning meals will be featured in various Whatcom County school cafeterias.
