CHEF Bites is an eight module healthy eating course where students learn how to make fun and healthy meals at low cost. The eight modules were lead by our Mayors Fitness Council Student Ambassadors, a representative from our local food bank, and the teacher. During these modules, students had the opportunity to prepare and sample foods that were discussed in the course.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students worked side by side with the teacher and the food bank representative in cutting and preparing the food.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

We hope to add more classes next year so more than one class gets to experiences CHEF. We also want to start incorporating these samples into our cafeteria for all to try.
