Welcome to Spring Vegetable Competition at York Suburban School District


York Suburban school district held a “Welcome to Spring” Vegetable competition today. The competition was fierce among Whitsons’ team members from all schools. (Click on image to see video.)


Team members from the High School created a rock band, the middle school a bunny garden complete with a Whitsons wheelbarrow. Indian Rock Elementary also created a garden and it was filled cauliflower sheep grazing on shredded green coconut.



East York Elementary got creative with the school mascot, a dragon named “Spike” and a FOODITUDE vegetable train. Yorkshire Elementary created a beautiful vegetable garden and Valley View Elementary had a colorful vegetable train rolling along a track. The creativity was amazing!


Whitsons’ Chefs, John Koutras and Sean Arnold judged the competition and what a difficult task it was since team members from all the schools presented such great work.



The winning team and school was announced this afternoon and it was team York Suburban High School for their rock band. As winners of the vegetable competition, team members received a one-of-a-kind Bunny Trophy and the students of York Suburban High School will have an outdoor Springtime barbecue complete with fresh vegetables and salads.


It was an exciting event for all Whitsons’ team members to show off their food art talent. Team members for each school had their vegetable creations on display in the cafeterias for students to see and enjoy. The feedback and engagement from students was very positive and complementary to the team members and overall everyone cannot wait ‘til the next year’s competition.
