Culinary Arts in Mississippi Public Schools

The MS Department of Education Office of Child Nutrition (OCN) coordinated its 2nd Junior Chef Competition in 2019.  It is a project that invites Mississippi public school students, through the culinary arts programs, to create a recipe that could be served in the school lunch programs that is student  friendly and follows USDA Nutrition Standards.

The Mississippi winner this year was Oak Grove High School and Culinary Arts Instructor, Debbie Miller, stopped by Good Things to talk with Rebecca Turner.
