2024 Sodexo Future Chef Competition

The 2024 Sodexo Future Chef competition will be held Thursday, March 14 at 4:15 p.m. at Hannah Beardsley Middle School. This year's theme is "your favorite food" and District 47 students in 3rd-5th grades are invited to submit recipes! Recipes will be reviewed by Sodexo and one winner from each school will be chosen to participate in the competition. In addition, this year kindergarten - 2nd graders are invited to participate in a culinary coloring contest. Coloring sheets will be available at D47 elementary schools by February 13. Students who complete a coloring sheet can return it to their teacher, who will then forward it on to the cafeteria manager to be displayed in the school cafeteria. All recipes and coloring sheets must be submitted to school cafeteria managers by March 8, 2024. See the links below. Questions about Sodexo Future Chef events can be directed to Terry Wenzel, Sodexo general manager, at
