Chili Cook-Off Kicks Off The Campus Kitchens Project Semester of Service

On Friday, January 13, teams of student chefs from five high schools will compete in a chili cook-off to kick start a weekend of service honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Under the guidance of chefs from Marriott Inc., and DC Central Kitchen, the high school chefs from St. Andrews Episcopal High School, Gonzaga College High School, Archbishop Williams High School (Boston, MA), Atlantic City High School (N.J.) and Hospitality High School of Washington, D.C., will compete while producing 150 meals for Bethesda Cares, an organization dedicated to assisting and feeding the homeless in the DC Metro area. Students from the competing schools regularly prepare and distribute food to those in need in their communities through The Campus Kitchens Project.

An all-star line up of judges, including Top Chef Contestant and area restaurateur Spike Mendolsohn, Marriott, Inc. CEO Arne Sorenson, DC Central Kitchen’s President and Founder Robert Egger and DCCK CEO Mike Curtain, will determine the winner.
