The Nutrition Department hosted School Nutrition Association workshops on June 24 and 25, 2015.  Each year, UNCG is a participant in the Annual Meeting for the NC School Nutrition Association.  As a part of the week long meeting with educational sessions, and an equipment/product exposition, 50-75 NC-SNA members come over to the campus for a hands on workshop for skill development.  In the past, workshop topics have been pasta making, canning, jelly production, cheese making, etc.  This year the workshop focused on production of a whole wheat yeast roll from scratch!  See pictures from the workshops here.   After the workshops, the yeast rolls were donated to the Greensboro Urban Ministry by Food Recovery Network here at UNCG.
