A team of judges will visit downtown Burke High School today to help decide whether the school will advance in first lady Michelle Obama's Recipes for Healthy Kids Challenge.
The first lady and the U.S. Department of Agriculture launched the competition in September, challenging teams of school nutrition professionals, chefs, students and community members to develop creative, nutritious and kid-approved recipes for schools.
Burke High students, Cypress Restaurant Executive Chef Craig Deihl, Slow Food Charleston and the Lean Team from the Medical University of South Carolina created a recipe called Confetti Soup that included dry beans and legumes.
The recipe was chosen as one of 15 semi-finalists from across the country. Three finalists will participate in a national cook-off event this summer.
