On November 1, Mrs. Weiner and Ms. McAloney, 7th grade teachers at FAMS, held the first ever FAMS Food Wars with their 7th grade ACES classes. Students were challenged to develop healthy recipes using farm-to-table ingredients. The students not only had to create recipes but also determine the nutritional content of their recipes, prepare their creations and then present their recipes and recommendations to a panel of judges.
The 5 judges were:
Dr. Lydia Furnari, Superintendent of Schools
Ms. Eva Prunk, FAMS Assistant Principal
Ms. Leisel Steines, Supervisor of Curriculum, Instruction, & Professional Development
Ms. Allison Larson, FAMS Guidance Counselor
Ms. Laura Metzler, FAMS PTA President
