Twelve students were selected from grades 3-6 to participate in the program which teaches students the basics of health food preparation.
Chef Justin Mills with K-12 Culinary Connection talked to the students about the importance of hand washing, smart snacking and portion size. He also talked to them about certain cooking techniques, holding and serving temperatures, food handling and the importance of understanding nutrition facts.
