Ten SUNY Delhi students competed in an evening of fun, frenzy, and big flavors to shine a light on food insecurity among college students during the inaugural SUNY Delhi Food Pantry Cooking Competition.
Held at the college's new Bluestone pub and restaurant, each team was given an hour to create an entree from a mystery box filled with items typically found in food pantries. The inspiration for the competition was to show that food pantry items can be used to create delicious and unique meals. Special guests at the event included New York State Food and Anti-Hunger Coordinator Susan Zimet, SUNY Delhi President Michael Laliberte, and representatives from the Delhi, NY Food Bank.
The winners of the competition were Lauren O'Leary and Emily Tekel. Read a full recap of the competition.To view these students click here: https://delhi.meritpages.com/achievements/Students-Participate-in-First-Food-Pantry-Cooking-Competition/116978
