Eat Real Food Culinary Academy Kick Off Monday August 17!

The "Eat Real Food Culinary Academy" is taking place August 17-21 at North Central High School in Spokane!  As part of our obesity prevention initiative, the Culinary Academy provides training and professional development to the kitchen teams from eight elementary schools in Spokane working to implement healthy scratch cooking this year.  Overall, our obesity prevention initiative has helped eight school districts successfully convert their school nutrition programs to healthy scratch cooking, which has reduced BMI while also proving financially sustainable, with our inaugural partner Cheney School District showing a net positive increase in revenue after two years.  We are thrilled to be able to kick off our largest obesity prevention partnership yet with such an exciting opportunity for kitchen staff!
