Recipe for Success

Hey Kids, What’s your Recipe for Success?

What's the contest all about?

The Recipe for Success contest aims to nourish the potential of Winnipeg kids by getting them talking about, preparing and eating healthy food. The contest is hosted by The Winnipeg Foundation.

The Winnipeg Foundation believes all kids should have access to the healthy food, nutrition education and cooking skills they need to grow and thrive. Our Nourishing Potential Endowment Fund helps make that possible. Click here to find out how.
