Food Studies

Food Studies at the high school level comprises an in-depth focus on all aspects of food and the relationship of food to health, values and lifestyles. Food Studies will enable students to examine the significance of food as related to physiological, sociological and psychological satisfactions in their daily lives. Chemical and physical properties and factors affecting changes in these properties are studied as well as the production and consumption of food. Practical experiences encourage the development of consumer, management, and decision-making skills. 

This is what students are saying about foods class. Foods class is fun. I get to work alongside my friends. We have a lot of opportunity to cook really good food. Before I came to this class, my cooking skills were very limited. Now I know how to select the right foods and the right combinations to make a delicious, nutritious and tasty meal.
