Students prepare Food Day meals

Eighth graders from Aspen Middle School prepare carrots for the Food Day meals served at the middle and elementary schools on Wednesday. School chef Tenille Folk and middle school health/wellness teacher Clay Shiflet worked together to involve the students in the preparation and cooking of all natural foods from Paonia and Olathe. 'We worked with the kids so conceptually they'll know what real food is and make healthy food choices," Shiflet said. "It's a great way for our students to learn about food policies and have them get involved."
