FHS Culinary Magnet Program Students Make Delicious Thanksgiving Treats

The halls of Freehold High School were filled with the familiar smells of Thanksgiving goodies while students prepared orders for the 25th Annual Thanksgiving Sale.

The Thanksgiving Sale benefits SkillsUSA, the Culinary Arts & Hospitality Management Magnet Program’s extracurricular club which allows students to take career exploration trips and perform community service projects throughout the year. Members of the community were able to order apple crumb pie, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, banana bread, Gluten-free apple crisp, 1.5lbs of assorted cookies, pumpkin spice granola, butternut squash soup, secret spice, cranberry relish, and blackberry vinaigrette.

In the days before Thanksgiving, the students were busy fulfilling those orders, making over 225 pies, 25 gallons of Butternut Squash Soup, 150 loaves of Banana Bread, and over 100 pounds of 15 different types of cookies.

The Culinary students will soon partner with Art students for the Annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser. Members of the public will be able to purchase quarts of soup and a decorative bowl to benefit the local food bank. Information regarding that fundraiser and about visiting the Five Star Café for lunch is available on the Five Star Café’s website.
