What’s for dinner? Food Science has the answer. If you are planning a culinary career, or simply want to choose, plan, and prepare nutritious meals for yourself and your family, Food Science is the course for you. This full year course prepares students to make good decisions, demonstrate real life skills and apply knowledge in the fields of nutrition, foods and food service careers. In addition to cooking, students will learn safe food handling and preparation to earn a Washington State Food Handlers Permit. College credits are available through Olympic College. This course would also be excellent preparation for the Culinary Arts program at West Sound Technical Skills Center.
