Blue Runner Foods is proud to be a sponsor of the Louisiana Restaurant Association Education Foundation and the Louisiana ProStart Program. This year we partnered with the LRAEF for the first ever #BlueRunnerBeanWeek, a week full of learning the ins-and-outs of cooking with Blue Runner beans. Students enrolled in the ProStart curriculum across Louisiana high schools made recipes during the week using various Blue Runner canned and dry bean products.
The final day of Bean Week, students were tasked with incorporating beans into their own recipe. Out of more than 45 recipes submitted, we are proud to announce Stephanie White's ProStart class at Plaquemine Senior High School as the winners!
