With the help of Navajo Technical University, school food preparation staff from across the Navajo Nation will get the opportunity to learn how to cook healthy, filling meals for their students.
Thanks to a $75,000 grant NTU received from Wal-Mart, the Culinary Arts Program is taking their catering truck on the road as part of their "Healthy Cooking and Eating in Indian Country" project.
Through this project the NTU catering truck will spend two days a week training staff at schools across the Navajo Nation on how to prepare and present Native foods in a healthy way that encourages students to eat healthy.
