Inspiring An Appetite For Learning: Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School | School Spotlight


So right now our students are working on
serving a Thanksgiving meal that they have been a part of preparing and planning for the last couple weeks. And they’ll be at both of our schools—our middle school and our elementary school—serving today, showing their work, talking about the recipes that they worked on, and hopefully having an enjoyable experience as well. For lunch we’re having turkey and then
gravy and cornbread dressing with sweet potatoes green beans, cranberry relish,
and with all meals we have fruit and milk. So we have a garden right outside our
school next to the chickens, and Chef just grows small stuff he wants to make,
to have some ripe vegetables and stuff like that, he can use if he wants it. My favorite thing about this class is that we get to like learn about what
type of foods come from where, and we get to do a lot of hands-on interaction with the food. We get to cut almost every other class, using like chef’s knives and paring
knives. We cut broccoli. We cut orange peels off. I got to cut cucumbers, so that was fun. We’ve cut a lot of different things. There’s a lot of work and care that goes into making good food and that prioritizing quality
ingredients and taking good care of them can really serve you all throughout your life.
