Elk River High School Culinary Program Partnership

On Thursday, September 28th, the Elk River Area Food Co-op headed to the High School to speak to the Culinary Class!

In this short 45 minute presentation we spoke about what a co-op is, the benefits of supporting local, why it's important to know the sourcing of your food and introduced the kids to local resources. The Elk River High School Culinary program was ranked #7 in the nation last year, with Miss Monique Sabby as their leader. Sabby believes that hands on kitchen skills are extremely important, especially for students who soon will be leaving high school and on their own to make healthy decisions. Food matters and we are grateful to share that same passion with others in our community!
