Emergency Kit Cookoff
1 p.m., May 10, at the Buckle Club in Cheyenne.
Preparedness is an important principle to promote. Tornadoes, floods, and even winter storms can leave families without the means to provide for themselves for three days. It is the goal of the Wyoming Citizen Corps Council to educate Wyoming residents on preparedness steps they can take to ensure they, and their family, will be better prepared.
The Wyoming Citizen Corps Council and the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security will be hosting an emergency kit cook-off to spread the preparedness message in a fun and entertaining way.
If you have ever watched the television show “Chopped,” you will understand this concept. Three cooks will prepare an appetizer, entrée, and dessert for the judges. The catch? They can only use the ingredients we provide them – which will be items from a three-day emergency kit. There will also be a safety/preparedness fair at the event.
Each dish will be judged and an overall 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prize will be awarded. The prizes will be a cash donation from a sponsor to the winner’s choice of charity specializing in preparedness (i.e., Red Cross, Salvation Army, etc.)
