Jennifer Massey, ECE teacher and FCCLA Adviser at Gordon Central High School, attended the recent GATFACS conference in Atlanta.  Georgia Teachers of Family and Consumer Sciences (GATFACS) holds an annual conference for teachers from the Family and Consumer Sciences Pathways, including Early Childhood Care and Education. In this photo, Mrs. Massey is pictured with Ga Pepper and the Shake it up information booth.

One of the events and classes that Mrs. Massey attended was the "Shake it up Initiative.

“GaDOE’s Shake it Up in School Nutrition initiative is all about changing the culture of school nutrition,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. “Our school nutrition staff and their colleagues across the state are shaking up school meals by providing updated, kid-tested and -approved recipes and other training and resources. The Student Chef Competition gets students directly involved in that process and gives them a great opportunity to put in practice what they’re learning in school.”

Teams will compete to develop a nutritious, student-friendly recipe that includes local foods, USDA Foods and is easily incorporated into the school food service program. The competition consists of a recipe contest and a cooking competition, and students will be judged on taste, student appeal, presentation, and creativity.

Mrs. Massey hopes to have a team from Gordon Central's FCCLA chapter.  She plans to get assistance from the UGA local extension agency, and the FFA/Ag teacher, Dr. Trish Williams from Gordon Central High School.
