Chefs Andrea Martin and Kate Adamick teach culinary boot camp for school kitchen staff who need to know how to plan and prepare healthful meals for the school cafeteria. The culinary boot camp idea came as a response to the growing number of obese students and the thickening American population in general.

The two women hope that culinary boot camp will give cooks and lunchroom staff the ability to cook healthful, calorie-wise, good-tasting meals that students will love. They emphasize the use of fresh foods and on-premise preparation and give canned and pre-packaged foods a thumbs down.
