BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - It’s being billed as the world’s healthiest eating championship.

Competitors sanctioned by Major League Eating - the ones famous for downing hot dogs by the dozen - will compete for the Kale Cup at this year’s Taste of Buffalo food festival on Saturday. They’ll have eight minutes to consume as much of the leafy green vegetable as possible.

The winner will take home $2,000.

The “Kale Yeah!” contest is meant to highlight the healthier fare served alongside the chicken wings and ice cream at Buffalo’s annual food festival. Independent Health Foundation’s Healthy Options program requires all vendors to offer a health-conscious menu item.
