Seventeen Vallejo students put on their chef hats and tied their aprons Saturday for the first-ever cooking competition, Junior Chef Challenge, at Dan Foley Recreation Center.
The students from Loma Vista Elementary School, Elsa Windenmann Elementary School and Solano Middle School worked in teams, according to their schools, to compete for an opportunity to submit a recipe to First Lady Michelle Obama’s Healthy Lunchtime Challenge.
