  • Carolina Union | The Great Hall 209 South Road Chapel Hill, NC 27599 United States (map)

UNC’s food-related organizations are cooking up their best recipes and competing to win YOUR vote!

What is the Great Carolina Cook-Off?
It's a cooking contest, and you get to be a judge! As a participant, you will receive 8 tickets and a token. Each competing organization will have prepared samples for you to enjoy for the exchange of one ticket. After you’ve exchanged all eight tickets, you’ll use your token to vote on who you believe created the best fare. The group with the most tokens at the end of the night will win bragging rights, cash money, and a highly coveted trophy. 

Molly De Marco will give a special presentation on the issues of food access in North Carolina at 7:30 P.M. Dr. De Marco is a Research Assisant Professor of Nutrition, Research Scientist at the UNC Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention, and a member of the UNC Food for All Committee.
