Culinary program wins award!

Nimmi Eramus and CEA Sue Kalke

A big congratulations to Red Seal Chef Nimmi Erasmus and the culinary arts program at Salmon Arm Secondary School (Sullivan Campus) for being the recipient of this year’s Farm to School BC Pollinator Award.

Nimmi, who instructs the program at SAS, has been integrating Farm to School principles into the SAS cafeteria, including sourcing from local farmers when possible, incorporating seasonal menus and engaging the next generation of culinary artists!

Students have had many engaging hands-on learning experiences including a workshop on pork butchering and sausage-making with Scott McKnight from Beast and Block. They also purchased a meat grinder so that they can begin processing their own meat! Congratulations!
