BC secondary students develop a taste for fresh local food


BC secondary students are sharpening their palettes, culinary skills and appreciation for local, seasonal, and nutritious food in a program called Take a Bite of BC. The program delivers donations from 42 local B.C. farms, food producers and industry associations twice a month to participating schools. Currently 37 schools are participating. According to cofounder, Lindsay Babineau, “Each of the culinary arts programs has about 100 students in Grades 10 through 12 and they are serving out food to 50,000 kids.” Read more in The Vancouver Sun.
