Nutritionally improve school lunches with recent cooking school graduates
Help cooking school graduates pay off their student loans, by creating an "Ameri-core like" program. If students work for a public school for one year after graduating, pay off a portion or all of their loans. Take it a step further, and encourage the cooking school to have a class on creating a nutritious meal for the same price that current public schools have in their budgets.
Fabulous idea. As a retired nutrition school graduate I know this would work---rather like an unpaid internship. Most important these graduates bring critical knowledge to the school venue: nutrition, budgeting, and purchasing as well as front of the house experience. They are usually tremendously enthusiastic and wouldn't that be a boost to school kitchens.
