Liberty High School Students Get Careers Cooking with Food Production

Students with a passion for cooking and catering will be pleased to hear about the food production class offered at Liberty High School.    

The program creates and serves the delicious food served at school events such as straight “A” luncheons, perfect attendance ceremonies, student of the month awards and sport banquets.

Not only does this class cook food for the numerous events held at Liberty, but they also help prepare students for a career outside the school walls.

“We do all of the videos and all the training for (our students’) health cards,” foods teacher and supervisor Lola Shipp said. “Hopefully by doing certification, it will help (students) get a job more easily in the future or even now.”

Food production also teaches the basics of food preparation such as how to handle different kitchenware and the various techniques that come along with them. Students learn color skills and how to present food in order to make it look as mouth-watering as it tastes.

“Food production is just a fun, easy class,” sophomore Ty Martinez said. “It’s a lot more fun than food and nutrition last year because we do a lot more for the luncheons and other stuff around the school.”

Just like any other elective, food production counts as a credit that goes towards a diploma. However, students must complete the food and nutrition class in order to be signed up for food production.

With all the skills learned and all the opportunities to find a job in the art of culinary work, who wouldn’t want to be a part of this fascinating team of cooks?
