Chef Night returns at Orchard Knob Elem.

Posted: Updated:

After a two year hiatus a valued community event is back.

Local students and parents headed out last night for chef night at Orchard Knob Elementary.

Community partners and Tupelo Honey Café sponsored the event. It's geared at teaching healthy habits to a community with 99 percent of students on free or reduced lunch.

"Our school is located in a food desert, so we are all about teaching out youth about health and nutrition," says Principal Lafrederick Thirkill.

Chef Night coincides with the fresh fruit and veggie program the school already has in place -- that is also geared toward teaching healthy habits.
