"You're the Chef" Equipment needed

As one of our Healthy Schools initiatives, Westminster is pleased to announce that we are planning to offer our students the "You're the Chef" after school cooking program. These sessions will teach basic cooking skills to a limited number of students in grades 5-8 that the whole family can enjoy. Stay tuned for registration forms going out in the new year. In the meanwhile we're getting ready and are looking for help with our essential cooking utensils.
