Today, the winning entre from students at Chicago Vocational Career Academy will be served at all high schools in the Chicago Public School system. The dish, a vegetarian-friendly course of red beans and rice with

smothered cabbage and caramelized carrots, won out over 29 other dishes

(entered by fifteen schools) in the competition. According to the

Healthy Schools Campaign, the dish meets the tight cost requirements

and nutrition guidelines of the school system. We've come a long way

since fish on Friday. Congratulations to the CVCA students.
