2017 Show Us Your Tray Photo Contest Winner
From December 1, 2016, through February 15, 2017, the USDA Food and Nutrition Service hosted our 2nd annual USDA Foods “Show Us Your Tray” photo contest. The goal of the contest was to highlight the wonderful ways schools are incorporating USDA Foods into their menus. We received more than 500 submissions, topping the total of 200 submissions for the 2016 contest!
Prince William County Public Schools in Virginia took the top prize with their Baja Cantina Nachos! These Baja Cantina Nachos used USDA direct delivery fajita chicken, topped with cheese sauce from the USDA Foods processing program and pico de gallo made with USDA DoD Fresh tomatoes and red onions. The tray also featured corn salad using USDA DoD Fresh tomatoes, red onion, and peppers; USDA direct delivery canned pears topped with USDA DoD Fresh blueberries; and USDA DoD Fresh apple slices. This vibrant, fresh, delicious, and colorful photo caught the judges' attention, and the meal is surely a crowd favorite with the students in Prince William County.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to participate in the “Show Us Your Tray” photo contest, and congratulations to the winner!
