Food Day Event coming up

Oshkosh Middle School Students to Celebrate Food Day

Sampling healthy, locally-grown food, and promoting Farm to School possibilities

Chefs from Primo’s Restaurant and The Roxy in Oshkosh will take part in a live healthy cooking demonstration during the 6th and 8th grade lunch periods at South Park Middle School in Oshkosh. Approximately 300 youth and school staff will have the opportunity to taste test and choose the winning dish in this "MasterChef"-inspired cook-off. Both dishes will incorporate jicama, the vegetable featured in the Oshkosh elementary schools as The Fun Food of the Month.
