The Southern University Ag Center, in collaboration with the LSU AgCenter, sponsored its “Creating Healthy Enjoyable Foods” (C.H.E.F.) youth cooking camps for youth in several parishes throughout the state.

The C.H.E.F. camps are designed to teach youth basic cooking principles and nutrition education based on the USDA’s, “MyPlate” food guidance system and Dietary Guidelines.

Each day, participants worked together to create an entire meal while learning healthy eating and physical activity principles, food preparation, kitchen and food safety, common cooking terms, proper food handling, measuring techniques, critical thinking and team building skills, planning and time management.

The camp was held in East Baton Rouge Parish July 9 - 13, 2018, on the Southern University Baton Rouge campus in Pinkie E. Thrift Hall.
