Watervliet Jr. High Student Cook- Off

, Watervliet, NY

Watervliet Junior Senior High School promoted healthy eating by holding a student cooking competition. As part of a new cooking club five teams of seventh and eighth graders prepared a basic rice bowl, adding additional ingredients from a specially prepared “pantry” to create their own signature creation. The winning dishes were: Taco Rice Bowl, Fruit & Nut Rice Bowl and Thai Rice Bowl.

A BIG Thank You!


Our Community Nutrition Educator Kim received a BIG thank-you note from students at Watervliet Elementary!
