What is Chefs in Schools?
Chefs in Schools is a Massachusetts based training program in which school food service staff is taught how to prepare healthy, cost effective recipes that students will eat. It began in just three Boston Public Schools and has since expanded to Chelsea, Lawrence, Salem, and Beverly Public Schools and anticipates further expansion for the 2015-2016 school year.
What does this mean?
Districts across the Commonwealth will now have the opportunity to participate in this proven program. Participating districts will receive a chef one to three days per week to train cafeteria staff on basic culinary skills, time management, cooking times and temperatures, basic cooking techniques, use of herbs and spices, presentation, and marketing.
