Middle School Cook Off- April 12, 2024

School Garden

April 23rd, 2024

Middle School students took part in a cook off just before April Break.

Over the past couple months, our farm to school garden coordinator has taught lessons on cooking and nutrition to students in grades 6-8. Each week students made a small snack with ingredients they may not have been overly familiar with.

The culminating event was a team based cook-off. Students were given a budget which they then used to develop a menu, list of ingredients and materials needed, and a plan. Day of the cook-off students headed to the grocery store and procured the needed ingredients and then got to cooking.

Students were awarded points for various categories including teamwork/collaboration, number of food groups, presentation, seasoning/taste, and more.

Congratulations to all, it was quite impressive to see what you all came up with!
