Last week, I visited the Laurel School, a girls' school in Cleveland, OH. SAGE's Food Service Director has been working hard to put together an event for the students that combines food sourcing, menu creation and good nutrition – something SAGE knows a thing or two about! The main event, on April 7, will be a food expo of local vendors.
My contribution to the program was a presentation focused on basic nutrition and SAGE's Spotlight program. I also reviewed points to consider when creating a menu, such as allergies, seasonality and cost. The students really seemed to pick up on the concepts and asked great questions. I can't wait to see the menus they come up with!
