Culinary Program at Wayfinder Schools

Posted on Sunday November 25, 2012

Did you know that each of our students learn to plan and prepare meals by taking turns cooking for the whole school each week?  Each student works with our culinary instructors, Cathy and Gina, to plan a week of nutritious meals and to come up with a shopping list that holds to the weekly budget.  They then work with Cathy and Gina to cook for the entire school, multiplying standard recipes to feed the whole group.  In this way, students are learning math, budgeting and culinary arts all at once.  On top of that, they bake their own bread daily, and have learned to can everything from pickles to applesauce.  Just one more way Wayfinder Schools are helping students gain skills and confidence for the future…
