Are you a member of LACA?

Entry to competition

  • The competition is open to all staff who hold a kitchen based position and who are involved in the daily preparation of meals for children at the time of entry to the competition.
  • Contestants may work in more than one kitchen but must be on a salary grade of Kitchen Manager or lower.
  • You don’t need to be a LACA member to register and submit a paper entry for judging in April 2021.  However if the entry is successful and your organisation or school go through to the regional finals in late 2021, it would be a condition of going into this level of the competition that you become a LACA member.
