The Tiger Chopped Challenge is a competition event that will feature food panty items as the base ingredients. LSU students will be teamed with LSU Dining chefs and given a food basket with staple items from the LSU Food Pantry. The teams will create their own unique dishes from the items provided. Entries will be judges on creativity, presentation, product utilization, and flavor. LSU alumnus, Baton Rouge native, and celebrity chef, Jay Ducote will emcee the event. This free event is open to the public. Donations to the LSU Food Pantry will be accepted at the door.
If you are unable to attend the event but would like to donate to the LSU Food Pantry, donations can be accepted at their location on the third floor of the LSU Student Union, as well as through the LSU Food Pantry Amazon Wish List.
