FOX8’s Melissa Painter was a judge for the JDRF Breakfast Battle on Saturday morning.
Five local kid chefs with type 1 diabetes went head-to-head after practicing for a more than a month – and Melissa helped decide who had the tastiest food.
The event raised more than $2,000 for JDRF. Organizers said the success of the first-ever event has them hoping to make it an annual tradition.
JDRF is a major charitable 501 organization dedicated to funding type 1 diabetes research.
