An Oshawa elementary school is $5,000 richer after a ‘Canadiana Poutine’ recipe earned a deliciously rave review in the Cheese4Change youth food program.

Woodcrest Public School utilized local, fresh ingredients in their video to showcase their sustainable commitments and recipe made with fair and accessible foods, sustainable veggies and Canadian cheese, to win the cash prize.

To celebrate their win, the school held an assembly where they were presented with an over-size $5,000 cheque on behalf of the Tre Stelle team. They even received a video message from Oshawa mayor Dan Carter, who congratulated the students and staff for the award, calling it “fantastic news.”

The Cheese4Change program, aimed at teaching Canada’s youth sustainable food habits, will reopen again in the fall for new recipe submissions awarding multiple cash prizes of $5,000 to schools and $500 to individual students.
