Students in the hospitality & tourism program at Immaculata High School participated in a Food Revolution Day cook-off promoted by Ottawa Public Health on Friday, May 15th. Food Revolution Day is an annual campaign led by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, a strong advocate of food literacy.
This special event challenged students to create a healthy, affordable, and delicious dish they would like to see served in their school cafeteria. All of the students excelled in the challenge, and had a great time cooking with their special guest “sous-chefs” Mayor Jim Watson, Councillor Mathieu Fleury, Dr. Isra Levy and Councillor Shad Qadry.

The competition is organized by Canadian Parents for French (Ontario) and the Ontario Modern Language Teachers’ Association. Congratulations!
