It’s almost time for this year’s Kids’ “State Dinner!” Today, we announced the 56 young chefs representing each U.S. state, five territories, and the District of Columbia that will be joining First Lady Michelle Obama at the White House on July 14 for the fifth annual Kids' “State Dinner.” The students attending are the winners of this year’s Healthy Lunchtime Challenge. The winners and a parent or guardian will enjoy a healthy lunch hosted by Mrs. Obama that features a selection of the winning recipes. Following lunch, everyone will head out to the South Lawn to visit the White House Kitchen Garden.
