In the morning Liz Mountain, food skills co-ordinator at the Local Community Food Centre visited Romeo Public School teaching the students how to prepare breakfast burritos.
In the afternoon session Pazzo Taverna and Pizzeria Chef Gilad Rozenberg worked with Students at Hamlet Public School preparing pizza from scratch. Pazzo co-owner Larry McCabe who joined Gilad added, "The idea is to show kids how to take basic ingredients and make a meal rather than open a package and stick it in the oven."
