Cooking is fun.

Students from American Legion High School visited the Learning Center at the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op recently to gain valuable experience in working in the kitchen and cooking healthy, affordable snacks.

Students worked together in four teams preparing Crunchy Kale Chips, Hummus and Baked Pita Chips, No Bake Cookies and High Energy Bars from scratch.

The recipes were demonstrated by the students and presented with the help of the Co-op’s beautiful presentation kitchen.

It was a perfect way to get the students in the kitchen, prepping delicious, easy-to-make food by themselves. Students and staff also walked to and from campus, giving students a great mix of physical exercise and hands-on nutrition education.

American Legion is excited to make healthy eating a priority and will be using these newly experienced cooks to teach others.
