DE PERE, Wis. (AP) - A Wisconsin chef is teaching school food service workers in the Green Bay area the art of preparing healthy meals from scratch.
The Green Bay Press-Gazette Media reports that about 50 area workers recently attended Monique Hooker's workshops to learn about the beauty of chopping, dicing and cutting fresh foods for kids.
The culinary workshops were hosted by Live54218, which is coordinating farm-to-school efforts. The program emphasizes using fresh foods in school cafeterias -- but food services workers must know how to prepare them.
The De Pere culinary workshops included lessons on the proper way to hold a knife, and how to keep a cutting board in place.
Jean Beno works for the Ashwaubenon School District. She says it's good for kids to know where their food originates.
