I realize that the Minister of Health & Minister of Advanced Education have to help you coordinate this decision if you go ahead. As a former Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) student, I would regularly eat in their school cafeteria. I still in fact swing by every few months or so to have a meal. The place is a culinary delight, what with its quality cntrol measures and professional lead & sous chefs. The cooks of the future come from there & these students are highly respected by their peers once they hit the open job market.
So why not use that talent and get the NAIT cooking & culinary students to coordinate with Home Economics classes from Elementary on up through High School? In conjunction with Meals On Wheels, these students could learn to cook and/or prepare meals nt just for the elderly and infirm, but for students in inner city schools who may not be getting the nutritional balance they need on a daily basis. As well as for kids who might not have working parents or those who are home schooled and who do not eat on a regular basis. If & when they do eat, there might not always be a parent to guide them properly in food safety.
It seems to me David that the kids of the present by helping out the kids of the future are going to make sure that the next generation of workers will be economic powerhouses. Is this not what we want David? With kids of all ages who are stronger in mind & body helping those who are down on their luck, socioeconomic structure of society will be evened out & that can only be positive for mankind.
So lets get on this David, dial up the NAIT President & any other cooking schools/facilities you might feel are appropriate & we'll make food education a top priority. Then get a hold of Meals On Wheels. I bet you they will be delighted to see younger people stepping forward and driving their business to grow.
