SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) --There was a special cooking competition in San Francisco Monday and challenge was making tasty meals out of food found in disaster preparedness kits.
San Francisco police officers faced off against firefighters from San Francisco and Oakland. They had 30 minutes to prepare meals on a camp stove. And, they had to do it with long-storage pantry items like dried pasta, canned green beans, tomato sauce and even spam.
The cooks came up with some tasty dishes, with Oakland firefighters won the competition.
The Salvation Army set up the cook-off and urges the public to have 72-hours worth of food and water stocked in their homes.
