For the 2021 NC Child Hunger Leaders Conference, we asked 7 different organizations to make original cooking demos. The chefs, organizations, and their recipes represent a wide variety of connections to fighting child hunger in North Carolina. Some dishes are a perfect for the USDA guidelines that meal sponsors must follow as a part of the federally-supported child nutrition programs. Others feature working chefs from restaurants in North Carolina that support schools and community organizations in their work to feed kids, partnerships that are more important now than ever. One video even serves as a “How-To” on making your own cooking demonstration.
Watch the full playlist on YouTube, or check out the individual videos and recipes below.
