The Food Revolution is designed to help people learn about healthy food through cooking, gardening and food samples. It was organized by Jessica Wickert, food service director for Baker School District. People came together Saturday to share their knowledge through classes, guest speakers, gardening techniques and documentaries about food. The goal is to promote more home cooking and freshly cooked meals at schools.
