Chef Jennifer Minichiello, adjunct faculty, culinary at The Art Institute of California—Orange County, a campus of Argosy University will be flying to Washington D.C. on June 6th with a team of students she mentors. The students, from Santa Ana Valley High School’s culinary academy, earned a spot in the national “Cooking Up Change” competition

Cooking up Change challenges high school culinary students across the country to create a healthy and delicious school lunch that meets national nutrition standards—all on a tight budget. Using only ingredients and equipment commonly available for school food service, students created recipes that appealed to their peers and could easily be replicated on a large scale in real school kitchens.

Chef Minichiello has previously led teams from Santa Ana Valley High School to victory, and she’s hoping to do it again this year. The team will present to Congress and various groups that include members of the James Beard Foundation.
