Beecher Cheese Nutrition Presentation

You know...that place that makes the mac and cheese that was on Oprah's "Favorite Things" list? The place down in Pike Place Market that makes cheese with all natural ingredients? Beecher Cheese... We had a student one time whose uncle owns that awesome place and he shared that, for community service, they teach kids about nutrition in schools. We have had them back for like 5 years in a row-it is really informative, hands on and they do a FABULOUS job in teaching and managing the kids. There are activities that the kids do to learn about what is in the food they eat and the whole point is that they learn to be skeptical and consume foods that they can pronounce the ingredients of. They they get to make this delicious vegetarian chili in support of that idea. Here is a sampling of the scene:

The "Onion and Garlic" group!
