The Super Snack Challenge is one step closer to naming their grand-prize champion!
On Tuesday, November 28 at Breaking Bread Café in Minneapolis, the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee hosted the 10 Super Snack Challenge “All-Pro Chefs” for a special “cook-off” event, where each young chef prepared and presented his/her healthy snack to a panel of celebrity judges.
Winners of the Super Snack Challenge will be announced at the MNSBHC Legacy Fund Kids Tailgate Party to take place during Super Bowl week festivities. All together, the 10 All Pro Chefs will help the Host Committee award nearly $60,000 to local charities as part of their success in this competition.
In addition to this awesome event, the MNSBHC awarded Appetite for Change a $50,000 grant from Newman's Own Foundation as part of the Host Committee's 52 Weeks of Giving campaign.
