Poor Chefs Competition

20/02/2018

Last year Operation Come Home (OCH) held their second annual Poor Chefs Competition and the à la carte Food Literacy Project was there to film the event. The Poor Chefs Competition invites local chefs to prepare a dish with only $3.15 and 2 out of 10 commonly-donated food bank items for an esteemed panel of judges. We created a short video of highlights and met the winner, Harriet Clunie of Beechwood Gastropub. This year she's back for their Third Annual Competition to defend her title!

Homeless youth in Ottawa often do not have the skills or knowledge of a chef, so preparing a meal with such limited resources is next to impossible. Instead, they turn to fast food or not eating at all. This event highlights food security issues in Ottawa while raising funds to help support programs at OCH which teach youth how to prepare nutritional and cost-efficient meals for themselves. Tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite, help support this great cause and taste some of the fantastic appetizers produced by FoodWorks; OCH's social enterprise. You can read more about FoodWorks in our à la carte digital story Food That Works

The à la carte food literacy project is funded by the Government of Ontario
