Purpose: Live Free Magazine’s community food and nutrition initiative goal is to inspire and motivate students to choose healthy food options, while teaching them some simple cooked & non cooked preparations for these healthy snack options. This program receives support of a group of Winston Salem chefs, restaurateurs, and farmers. We encourage people to buy fresh, locally grown food. But the challenge is that an increasing number of people who don’t know how to cook. So our goal is to bridge this gap.
The Event: Each event consists of an assembly style setup, accommodating up to 500 students. This 120 minute presentation is a high energy packed session, starting with an introduction of our partnering college athletes. These muscle bound athletes get students up and moving with their ice breaker exercises.
Students are introduced to our Cuisine Editor Aaron Rickett. Aaron teaches students about veggies, meat, and carbs. He shares the importance of each to fueling a healthy lifestyle. He gets students involvement in this demonstration, by selecting volunteers from the audience and making them sous chefs for the day. Aaron wraps up the session with a cooking demonstration and incorporates students. Student sous chefs are provided the opportunity to taste test prepared food. Each student walks away with a gift bag filled with educational information about eating healthy and getting active.
