Each year in March, LifeSong chases away the winter blues with our annual Chili Cook Off. Teams are formed and they each come up with unique recipes that they think will have the winning chili. Our categories are: Just Like Mom used to Make, Call the Fire Department, Best Display, and the Blue Ribbon Chili. Over the past years, we have had some very interesting ingredients such as pineapple, chocolate, venison and alligator . Our groups also go all out with their creative table displays, often adding costumes.
We then invite staff from the places we volunteer throughout the year to come and sample our chili recipes and vote for their favorites. We have two cook offs each March so we can accommodate everyone in LifeSong and our guests! It is a fun way to spice up a cold month!
