If you're old enough, you remember the days when "cafeteria ladies" had a craft and the food at school was hand made, right down to the dinner rolls. After decades of moving away from that proud tradition, districts are slowly returning to it. In Maryland, a stand-out "boot camp" for food service workers statewide teaches basic cookery, nutrition science, professional kitchen protocols, and much more. It's a model for training programs that are emerging all over the nation as schools work their way forward (and back) to more real, fresh food in the cafeteria. This program was brought to you by White Oak Pastures.

"The folks that attend our training are trained on how to train and then there's a ripple effect." [05:30]

"If I really want a piece of a equipment and I buy the lesser version of that piece of equipment, I'm never happy and always end up getting the good one in the end." [28:00]
