These free training videos will help you and your school food service staff use more whole grains and fresh, Wisconsin-grown fruits and vegetables in your school meal program. The videos were developed in partnership with CESA Nutrition Purchasing and the Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems (CIAS). To view the videos, please visit the CIAS website. In addition, the Chop! Chop! Resource Guide was developed to accompany the videos. The guide is a compilation of the recipes featured in the videos and includes information about Wisconsin crops, procurement of local products, food safety, and professional development.
