Seventh graders at Sherman Middle School are learning healthy cooking from the pros. Two Mondays each month, L’Etoile chefs Tory Miller and Eva Ringstrom teach the students how to cook with fresh produce. Their class not only extolls healthy eating, but also gives the students experience preparing fresh produce. This class is part of Wisconsin Homegrown Lunch, which is a farm-to-school project in the Madison Metropolitan School District. Students at Sherman, Falk and Midvale are participating in a USDA grant program that provides weekly fresh vegetable and fruit snacks. WHL is working with these schools to source locally, sustainable grown produce for this program.
