The College of Southern Nevada’s culinary program teamed up with local nonprofit Chefs for Kids to deliver freshly cooked, healthy meals to local schoolchildren. Students and faculty from CSN’s program began prepared food Sept. 17 at the college’s Cheyenne campus, 3200 E. Cheyenne Ave., and served the breakfast to approximately 800 children at Craig Elementary School, 2637 E. Gowan Road.
Chefs for Kids helps provide nutrition education to first- and second-graders in high-need Clark County School District schools.
“Our ultimate goal is to end the childhood nutrition problem,” said chef Tom Rosenberger, chairman of CSN’s hospitality management department and a member of the Chefs for Kids board of directors, in a press release.
The food for the breakfast was donated by local businesses and featured fresh fruit, potatoes, eggs, sausage and a muffin.
Chefs for Kids is a joint venture of the American Culinary Federation Chefs Las Vegas and the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension. The program works to eliminate malnutrition and hunger through education and awareness. Visit chefsforkids.org.
