Free training courses offered to Springfield School District food service workers

SPRINGFIELD - Springfield Public School District 186 officials say three dozen food service workers are receiving free training to make meals using locally sourced food this summer.

Officials say the training classes are being offered thanks to a grant obtained by Lincoln Land Community College.  The classes will be held from June 9 through June 12, and from July 27 through July 30, and will be taught by Beyond Green Sustainable Food Partners founder Greg Christian.

Participants will learn more about scaling recipes, preparing entrees, breakfast items, and side dishes more efficiently, different culinary techniques, and much more.  At the end of each training session, the food service workers will host a luncheon to apply their new skills.
